Archeological Weekend,

Rock River Archeological Society hosts weekend

2015 Archeological Weekend set for October 10 and 11 The Rock River Archeological Society hosts a weekend historical/educational event annually. This is a great admission free family event with something for all ages. All activities are held outdoors and inside the building between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, at the Horicon Education and Visitor Center located between Horicon and Mayville on Hwy. 28. Take the opportunity to learn more about RRAS by speaking with a member at our information table located in the lower level of the Center. A buckskinners encampment with Dirty Kettle and friends will both fascinate and educate young and old. Walk into a teepee, hear stories, try throwing a tomahawk and see the Voyageur canoe display. Join Dirty Kettle at 4:30 on Saturday for a flute circle with a drum circle to follow. There will be atlatl demonstrations and a chance to try throwing the atlatl at a target. Talk with local collectors and see their museum quality artifacts. Try your hand at corn grinding and fire starting techniques, learn how a wigwam is constructed, and find out about basic basket weaving techniques. There will be children’s activities, food for purchase, and vendors to visit. Also enjoy our speakers.
