“Every Hill Has a Story”
“Every Hill Has a Story” Found Artifacts of Minnesota
Sunday, February 12th -2 to 4 PM
Please bring your own artifacts
and discoveries found in Minnesota!
The McLeod County Historical Society will feature a special program and display highlighting early Native American artifacts found in Minnesota. The program will be led by Lynn and feature a display of the many varied items she and her friends have found throughout her walks and exploration of different sites in the area. Lynn has compiled a book, shown above, “Every Hill has a Story”, in which she uses beautiful photos to show just some of the unique and still little known and understood artifacts that she and others have found. Although not a trained archaeologist, Lynn has had many of her pieces evaluated by experts in the field and has learned a great deal about dating and placing these finds into their proper historical context.
Lynn’s personal collection of items she has found on numerous walks and site tours will be on display at the Museum throughout the month of February. Lynn will talk about her collection of pieces at her program on the 12th, and she and the Museum staff encourage guests to bring in unique stones, bones, or other pieces they have found or have in their family collections to share with the group. “Its always great to see what people are finding out there”, says Lynn and, “what can be learned about Minnesota’s earliest people.” We hope you will join us for this look at found artifacts of Minnesota.
