Up Close and Personal with Prehistoric Artifacts

August 24, 2017
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Take advantage of a unique opportunity to see Native American artifacts up close. The Carmel Clay Historical Society is bringing together Strawtown Koteewi Park Historical Resource Specialist Christy Brocken and Carmel Engineering Administrator Josh Kirsh to discuss Kirsh's recent find of a prehistoric artifact.

In late June Kirsh found a banner stone during the construction of a roundabout at 136th Street and Gray Road. The stone is more than 4,000 years old and had a variety of uses for the Archaic people who lived here. Brocken will talk about local Native American history to put the stone in context. She will also bring other prehistoric artifacts that have been found in Hamilton County for the public to view.

This program will be held in the Program Room.
