Sep 17, 2015 09:21AM ● Published by Jim

Rock River Archeological Weekend set for October 10 and 11

The Rock River Archeological Society (RRAS)  will host a weekend of historical and educational events on Saturday and Sunday, October 10-11. This is a great, admission free, family event with something for all ages. All activities are held outdoors on the grounds and inside the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Come see a buckskinners encampment with Dirty Kettle and friends which will both fascinate and educate young and old. Visitors can walk into a teepee, hear stories, try throwing a tomahawk and see the Voyageur canoe display. Join Dirty Kettle at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday for a flute circle with a drum circle to follow. 
There will be atlatl demonstrations and a chance to try throwing the atlatl at a target. There is also opportunity to talk with local collectors and see their museum quality artifacts. Try your hand at corn grinding and fire starting techniques, learn how a wigwam is constructed, and find out about basic basket weaving techniques. There will also be children’s activities, food for purchase, and vendors to visit. 
The speaker/event schedule is as follows:
