Archaeology and Preservation in Cemeteries

In honor of Louisiana Archaeology Month (and Halloween, and our headstones exhibit), on Tuesday October 29 at 6:30 pm here in the History Center meeting room we will have a cemetery archaeology program with Curtis Deselles of the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training of the National Park Service. He will share some fascinating information he’s learned by using a cultural anthropologist’s perspective to study an historic cemetery in Natchitoches and will explore what cultural information can be learned in from historic graveyards, including gravestone morphology. Complementing this program will be our Bossier Parish headstones exhibit.
