Join us on Sunday, Oct. 9th as we reveal the second and third Carbon, (C14) test results to date our dugout canoe.  Chris and Ann Merriman of the Maritime Heritage Minnesota, will give a talk about the history of the canoe, the first C14 test that dated the canoe to 1030AD and how this second and third test will help to solidify the correct date of this unique artifact.  We may also get a sneak peak of a 3-D scan the couple has been  working on making of our dugout canoe!
