  Illinois Valley Archaeological Society Lecture Series   

Illinois Valley Archaeological Society Lecture Series

  • Location: ISM Dickson Mounds Museum, Lewistown
  • Date: Wednesday, April 02, 2014, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Mr. Richard L. Fishel, Senior Research Archaeologist, Illinois State Archaeological Survey, will present a talk titled: “Recent Investigations at a Probable 1820s Potawatomi Winter Homestead along the Spoon River” at the Wednesday, April 2, 2014 meeting of the Illinois Valley Archaeological Society. The presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. This lecture is free and the public is invited to attend.

During 2013, the Illinois State Archaeological Survey conducted survey and limited test excavations at a Historic Indian site along the Spoon River prior to a proposed IDOT bridge replacement project. A substantial metal assemblage was recovered, including gun parts, ammunition, projectile points, jewelry, clothing ornaments, and scrap pieces, as well as a smaller number of stone and glass artifacts. Relying primarily on archival information, we suggest that the site is likely affiliated with the Potawatomi and dates to the 1820s.

The Illinois State Museum—Dickson Mounds is located between Lewistown and Havana off Illinois Routes 78 and 97. The museum is open free to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every day. Tours and special programs are available for groups with reservations. For more information call 309.547.3721 or TTY 217.782.9175 or visit the museum's web site at www.ExperienceDicksonMounds.com.
