  • Lecture - Prehistoric Wisconsin: Living with the Seasons

    Tuesday, May 05, 2015
    7:00 pm at Vernon County Historical Society, Viroqua, WI

    Constance Arzigian, Senior Research Associate at the Mississippi Valley Archeology Center, UW-La Crosse, will describe how archeologists determine during what seasons a site was occupied, what people were hunting and gathering, and how these things changed in southwestern Wisconsin over the last 10,000 years. 

    The public is invited to this free program. If you have recently found arrowheads or similar artifacts and would like to ask Dr. Arzigian about them, you are welcome to bring them to the program. Weather cancellations are announced on WVRQ radio and on the Facebook page of the Vernon County Historical Society.  For additional information contact the Vernon County Historical Society.
