Archaeology Road Show

Hosted By: Rock River Archaeological Society

Location: Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center

About: Mark December 19th on your calendar as we have our very fun night trying to identify what might have been in your friend’s attic. The program for the evening is the annual “Road Show” where members and visitors are encouraged to bring in an interesting, strange, or unknown artifact to share with others. The “Road Show” is really a great event and unlike a similarly named show on TV, this is not an appraisal, but a chance to show off and learn about interesting things we have hidden in our garages and attics. One at a time, participants come to the front of the room to show and talk about their item. If it is a mystery item to the owner, there is a good chance that someone in the audience can identify it. At the end of the show there will be a drawing for prizes that one of the members has collected. Some lucky people will go home with an additional item. After the “Road Show” there is delicious snack time for everyone to enjoy. All are welcome to bring something edible to share and stay to enjoy the festivities. Do not miss this wonderful evening, learning new things and sharing some Christmas goodies with your friends after the show.

Refreshments are served after the program and the public is invited to attend. The doors open 5:45 pm. Access to the building can be made from the upper parking lot until 6:30 pm or at the lower doors for the whole evening.
