'Indian Artifact Magazine' Publisher Presents

Native American artifact expert Gary Fogelman will discuss prehistoric tools and stone implements at the upcoming meeting of Northcentral Chapter 8 of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology. Fogelman also will bring a display to the 6 p.m. Monday, March 7 meeting at the Lycoming County Historical Society, 858 W. Fourth St.

Fogelman is the publisher of Indian Artifact Magazine, as well as the author and co-author of several books on the same topic. He has collected artifacts and researched the subject of Pennsylvania Indians for more than 35 years.
According to Indian Artifact Magazine, its publisher "… believes that the legal collecting of artifacts that surface across the land is a good thing.

It's a great past-time, and is a boon to archeology. Those collecting sometimes need guidance.
"This is what IAM endeavors to provide. After all, we are simply stewards for a little while of these things from the past. While in our possession we have a responsibility to see that benefit can be derived from the things we possess.

"Toward that end we try to educate people on what to do with their artifacts, to keep notes and/or information about the things they have, and to cooperate with the professional world whenever possible."

More information about Fogelman is available on his website: http://www.indian-artifacts.net.
