Dr. Michael Conner, Dickson Mounds Museum, will present "Exploring a 14th Century Multicultural Village." For five years, archaeologists from Dickson Mounds Museum and Michigan State University have conducted excavations at the Morton Village site in Fulton County. The site was a major Native American village that contained as many as 100 houses and other buildings during the 1300s. The goal of the project is to understand the relationship between the Oneota and local people of the Mississippian cultural tradition who had occupied the area for several centuries. Free and open to the public. Lecture will be held from 7pm-8:30pm at the Illinois State Museum Research and Collections Center, 1011 E. Ash Street in Springfield. Access to the building is from 10 1/2 Street. For more information, please call 217-785-0037.
