|Prehistoric Indian Artifacts found at Glunk Site.|
Drag out your cigar boxes, dust off the framed shadowboxes, and bring your arrowheads and other collected Indian curiosities to the Taber Museum from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
on March 12 when Northcentral Chapter 8, Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology hosts an open house.
Gary Fogelman, noted artifact collector, author and publisher of the former Indian Artifact Magazine, is the featured guest for the event, along with Tom “Tank” Baird, president of NCC8/SPA and an avocational archaeologist and iHeartRadio contributor.
Baird is a frequent guest on Ted Saul’s “Community Matters” talk show, speaking about Prehistoric Indians and significant local historic events.
Fogelman, a lifetime member of NCC8, is best known for his work as the publisher of Indian Artifact Magazine, and several handbooks on projectile points, artifacts and local cultures. He also contributes to national publications and typology handbooks.
Fogelman and Baird will review Indian artifacts brought by visitors and attempt to identify small collections and individual items.
Locally found artifacts, as well as excavated finds from previous NCC8 excavations, will be on display and Baird will speak about the group’s ongoing dig at the Glunk Site in Montoursville.
The Glunk Site dig, accessible from Canfield Lane, is open to the public and interested persons are encouraged to join the group and learn how to excavate at an archaeology site.
