Date: October 7, Time 7 pm CDT Website: Dr. Evan Peacock presents "Archaeology at Lyon's Bluff: Past, Present, and Future." Event: Learn more about what archaeological research reveals about Lyon's Bluff, a Conservancy preserve that was once the site of an Indigenous agricultural village from around 1200 to 1650 AD in the Black Prairie of Mississippi. The area's peculiar environmental characteristics allow for extraordinary preservation of archaeological remains which have been revealed by excavations and remote sensing. This lecture will discuss the results of these studies and why this site is one of the most important sites in the Mid-South region.
Date: Saturday, October 23 Time: 10:00am and 2:00pm Place: Rolling Fork, Miss. Event: Sam Brookes will be giving his Mound Tour during the Great Delta Bear Affair in Rolling Fork coming up on October 23rd. Plan a visit to this fun event and hop on the tour to learn about some Delta mounds.
