    The archaeology of Silver Mound: Breaking rocks for 13,000 years. People have been visiting Silver Mound, near Hixton, WI, since the end of the ice age. What has been drawing them there? From how far away did they travel? What did they do there? How do we know all this? Learn about this important site and see a display of some of the materials that have been found there, including some of the oldest artifacts in the state.

    Speaker: Dr. Connie Arzigian, MVAC Senior Research Associate; Lecturer, Dept. of Sociology/Archaeology
