Indiana has more than 60,000 recorded archaeological sites and Warsaw Community Public Library is hosting a free program next week on the topic.
At 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, the presentation, “Archaeology In Your Community,” will cover myths and realities regarding archaeology, what is happening in Indiana in terms of archaeology today. Also address will be how the public can be involved in archaeology, the Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology (DHPA, part of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources) and how they serve the public, the archaeological laws which protect sites, information about responsible collecting of archaeological artifacts and more.
Special speaker Amy L. Johnson, senior archaeologist and Archaeology Outreach coordinator, has worked for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology since 1991. She is also Indiana’s state network coordinator for the Public Education.
