Mitchell Area Historical Society Programs
Monday, June 26, 2017, 7 p.m.
Dr. Alan Outram and Dr. Adrien Hannus, eminent archaeologists, will bring us current with new happenings at the Mitchell Archeodome and will speak about the “Origin of Dairies.”
Dr. Outram and Dr. Hannus are here with their students from Exeter University (in the United Kingdom) and Augustana University (Sioux Falls) respectively on their annual visit to provide the students with the hands-on experience to dig at the Archeodome which protects the Native American dwelling site of about a thousand years ago that borders the stream which in 1928 became Lake Mitchell when a dam was built.
Mitchell Area Historical Society members and friends are so fortunate to be able to hear these very personable and knowledgeable professors. The Archeodome is on the international “archaeological map” thanks to the Hannus and Outram leadership and involvement over the years.
Note change below from June to July.
Monday, July 17th, at 7:00 p.m., Lynn Muller, who taught marketing at the University of South Dakota and is now curator of the camera collection at the W. H. Over Museum in Vermillion, will bring cameras to display and describe the history of cameras.
