    ExcavationAt the Minnesota Archeological Society Annual Dinner Meeting MVAC archaeologists Dr. Kathy Stevenson and Dr. Connie Arzigian will share their incredible discoveries under the main street of Onalaska, Wisconsin.  Highway construction contractors and the entire town rallied around an Oneota Village uncovered below Hwy 35 in 2012.  Beneath an old railroad track, over 500 pit features with outstanding preservation of faunal remains were found.  There may be a decade of laboratory analysis ahead, but Kathy and Connie will tell their incredible story and bring some of the artifacts to view.  For more information visit the Minnesota Archaeological Society's website at:
