You’ve been wondering about that rock you found in a field a couple of years ago. Was it part of an ancient tool? Who may have used it? And for what purpose? The staff at Calkins Nature Area want to help you find answers to those questions, and they’ll offer that opportunity next month at their first-ever Archaeology Day.
The idea for the day came from the nature center’s new collection of Native American artifacts that was gifted to Calkins four years ago by Jeff Ulch. Ulch spent decades searching streams, woods and fields in Hardin and Marshall counties, and turned up thousands of artifacts including bones, arrowheads and pots.
