Archaeology Month at the Athens County Historical Society


The Athens County Historical Society and Museum is hosting Archaeology Month at the Museum at 65 North Court Street in Athens, Ohio on Thursdays in October at 5pm.

Josh McConaughy, Associate Director of the Archaeological Conservancy in the Midwest will be speaking about their work in this region. The Conservancy holds title to and manages a few properties in southeastern Ohio.

The Archaeological Conservancy is the only national, nonprofit organization that identifies, acquires, and preserves the most significant archaeological sites in the United States. Since its beginning in 1980, the Conservancy has preserved more than 465 sites across the nation, ranging in age from the earliest habitation sites in North America to a 19th-century frontier army post. We are building a national system of archaeological preserves to ensure the survival of our irreplaceable cultural heritage.

The program will be held in the Athens County Museum at 65 North Court Street at 5pm. Admission is free of charge and refreshments will be served.

On Thursday, October 15th, Jarrod Burks  of Ohio Valley Archaeology Inc. will speak on Archaeology’s Geophysical Survey Revolution: Rediscovering Ancient Earthworks in the Ohio Valley.
