  • Lecture - From Under the Streets to Front-Page News: Archaeological Excavations of an Ancient Village in Onalaska

    Monday, March 24, 2014
    7:00 pm at Onalaska Public Library, Meeting Rooms

    ExcavationIn 2012 highway construction in downtown Onalaska made national news when remains of a late pre-Contact Oneota village and cemetery site were uncovered under a busy city street.  The scale of the finds was a surprise-and a major challenge.  Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center Projects Director Katherine Stevenson will discuss the project, and how cooperation and communication between agencies, the City of Onalaska, contractors, tribal representatives, and archaeologists was the key to a successful outcome.
