OHIO ARCHAEOLOGICAL COUNCIL FALL MEMBERSHIP MEETING OCTOBER 22, 2011

The Ohio Archaeological Council is holding its Fall Membership meeting at the Ohio State University-Newark Campus in Hopewell Hall, Rooms 64 & 68 on Friday, October 22nd, 2011.

Join us between 9:30 and 10:00 for donuts, bagels and coffee followed by four papers on a variety of topics related to Ohio archaeology. Of special interest for the OHS Archaeology Staff is the report by Dr. William Romain on his research teams work at Serpent Mound.

Here is an excerpt from the abstract for his paper, which is scheduled for 11:15:
The Serpent Mound Project seeks to expand our knowledge of Serpent Mound through non-invasive and minimally invasive techniques and new technologies. In this presentation, preliminary results of our 2011 work at Serpent Mound are provided. Among the results discussed are findings relevant to geodetic survey, LiDAR imaging, magnetic gradiometer survey, hand-coring, electric resistivity survey, and GeoProbe mechanical coring.

Together these new technologies and techniques provide unique perspectives and new understandings of one of Ohio’s most enigmatic earthworks.

In the afternoon, there is a special workshop on the variety of ceramic types found on archaeological sites in Ohio. Martha Otto, Curator Emerita for the Ohio Historical Society, is bringing a selection of ceramics from the OHS collection.

The public is welcome to attend!
