Winter Lyceum (5 of 7): A Panel of Archeologists Presents “13,000 Years of Driftless Ingenuity”
March 20 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
In conjunction with unveiling a new analysis of nearly 1,200 Native American stone tools in the collection of The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums, a panel of archeologists will reveal how stone tools were made in this nook of the Driftless Region, and how the museum collection demonstrates the ingenuity of native peoples who inhabited this area through time. From the end of the Ice Age though the period of European contact, Native Americans crafted tools in response to changing natural and cultural environments. The materiality and design of implements were adapted to different flora and fauna over time and for each season. A flintknapping demonstration and sneak peek of a new museum exhibit (supported in part by a major grant from Wisconsin Humanities) will be included.
Each year, the museum invites a series of speakers to share their unique stories, histories, and insights. The 2022 Winter Lyceum will run each Sunday from February 20 to April 3, and will feature seven engaging hour-long lectures for the price of $4 each or $20 for all seven. The lectures will be held online via Zoom, and a link will be provided upon registration.
