Archaeological Lecture

I know I am supposed to be blogging about Dolls part 2 this time, but I wanted to let everyone know that the Christian County Historical Society is having a special event in a few weeks!

In case you didn't know September is Illinois Archaeological Awareness month. On Friday September 24th at 7:00 pm at the Historical Society Dr. Michael Hambacher will give a free lecture about the archaeological finds uncovered as a result of the Rockies Express-East Pipeline Project, which covered part of Central Illinois. Dr. Hambacher will talk mostly about finds associated with Woodland and Archaic peoples.

Also, if you want to come early and get a tour of the grounds (suggested donation is $2 per person) we would love to have you come on down! You can have a chance to see all the wonderful objects housed at the Historical Society. I know Chuck and I at least will be out there early (5 pm at the latest).

For more information about the lecture, feel free to e-mail the Historical Society at

P.S. I'll be brining cookies - let that sway your vote as it will!
