Wisconsin Archaeology Timeline

Sub Header: Sat, Sep 23; 1-2pm

Saturday, September 23, 1:00 – 2:00 pm

Presented by Dr. Jeff Behm, archaeologist at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh

Few people know the prehistory of the Lake Winnebago region better than Dr. Behm. His interests include Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene hunter-gatherers, lithic and ceramic technology, archaeology of Historic Native Americans, and archaeometry. Salvage excavations of a large village west of Oshkosh led Dr. Behm to switch his research to the effect of the Historic Fur Trade on Native Americans.

A diehard advocate for an exhibit on this topic, it was not difficult to persuade him to be our go-to research specialist to help staff identify, date, and analyze artifacts. In this presentation, Dr. Behm will give an overview of the Wisconsin Archaeology Timeline and discuss the laborious work that went into creating the new People of the Waters exhibit.

This event is free with general admission. Please contact Karla Szekeres at 920.236.5763 or email kszekeres@ci.oshkosh.wi.us to register for this event.
