Tues, May 31, 10:00-3:00 - Archaeology Field School Open House

Archaeology Field School Open House! A Ball State University archaeological field school (May 16 to June 17) is taking place adjacent to the Fort Recovery State Museum grounds. This field school is investigating a parcel that is thought to hold archaeological remains of the original Fort Recovery. A public open house as part of National Historic Preservation Month will be held on Tuesday May 31 from 10:00 to 3:00 at the field school site.  Come visit with archaeologists as they excavate,  help screen dirt, and learn from our posters and maps how archaeology is influencing our interpretation of the Battle of the Wabash (1791) and the Battle of Fort Recovery (1794)!

This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Ohio History Connection’s History Fund. The History Fund is supported exclusively by voluntary donations of Ohio income tax refunds and designated gifts to the Ohio History Connection.
