FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Two family-friendly archaeology events are scheduled in Kentucky this month.
The Kentucky Heritage Council says Living Archaeology Weekend will be held Sept. 22 at Gladie Visitor Center in the Red River Gorge area of Daniel Boone National Forest. It will feature demonstrations of Native American and pioneer life, including corn grinding, blacksmithing, hide tanning and open-hearth cooking.
Kentucky State Parks said Wickliffe Mounds State Historic Site in western Kentucky is hosting an archaeology event the same day. It will feature demonstrations and activities including a mock excavation for children, spear and atlatl throwing and pottery making. In addition, there will be a presentation featuring culinary traditions of early native tribes using modern day techniques.
The Kentucky Heritage Council also will post a blog about archaeology during the month of September.
