Dig into Oakland County’s free archaeology workshop

Interested in archaeology? Find out about four exciting digs taking place in Oakland County at the 4th Annual Archaeology Workshop, Digging Into The Past. The free workshop takes place Saturday, Oct. 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., and is presented by the Oakland County Historical Commission.

Four local archaeologists and historians will present field reports from their current “digs,” as well as new information on the Oakland County Civil War Mapping Project and Commemoration. Plans are already underway in Oakland County to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War (2011-2015). There will even be a special guest appearance from Michigan’s 12th governor, Moses Wisner!

Find out how your community can become involved; discover the resources you need to help make it happen.

The workshop takes place at Oakland University’s Oakland Center, in the Lake Superior Rooms (A & B). For more information, visit oakgov.com.
