Wisconsin Archeological Society Fall Meeting

The 2017 Fall Meeting of the Wisconsin Archeological Society (WAS) takes place on Saturday, Sept. 30 in Beloit, WI. We will have the business meeting in the morning, but there will also be discussion by chapters, a poster session, a forum on culturally modified trees with a presentation by Dr. Evan Larsen, and archaeology tours. The Three Rivers Archaeological Society (TRAS), a chapter of the Wisconsin Archeological Society and the Logan Museum of Anthropology at Beloit College are hosting the meeting.

The day begins with the Introduction at 9 am. The WAS Business Meeting begins at 9:30 am and it is followed by student posters and number of events. The highlight of the day is the Culturally Modified Trees Forum at 2 pm and a presentation by Dr. Evan Larsen about culturally modified trees in the northern Minnesota. There will also be tours of the Logan Museum and Beloit College Mound Group during lunch as well as a site tour of an earthen enclosure at the end of the day.

WAS is providing boxed lunches for participants. However, we need to get your selection of sandwich/wrap and side dishes. A selection sheet of breads, meats, and side dishes is attached. Please contact Sara Pfannkucke (sara.pfannkuche@gmail.com) with the number of lunches you need and your selection(s) by September 25.
