Archaeology month events

October is Louisiana archaeology month and the Historical Center is excited to highlight local cultural resources and the work of archaeologists.

We have an archaeology month scavenger hunt in the Historical Center for ages 8 - 13. Participants will search for answers in our Caddo Indian exhibits and receive prizes. Our grand prize winners for each age group will get a book about archaeology! Join the hunt anytime during the month of October.

We also have a program next Thursday, Oct. 20th at 6 pm. Dr. George Avery, an archaeologist at Stephen F. Austin University will give a show-and-tell talk about antique bottles. Curious about a bottle you found? Bring it with you to the program and Dr. Avery will help you learn more about its history.
