The event is scheduled to run from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Lowry Center, Beall Ave., Wooster, Ohio. The Wayne County Cemetery Preservation Society, and the Wayne County Historical Society will have displays of maps and artifacts, and members will be there to discuss the history and archaeology of the county. The event will also include a number of exhibits demonstrating the variety of things that make up the human past around the world. Roman pottery and glass from the site of Pella in Jordan, casts of early human fossils, and stone tools from several prehistoric Indian sites in Ohio and Pennsylvania will be on display. A demonstration will show how prehistoric peoples fashioned tools out of stone. Activities for children will include the mending of broken pottery, “cave painting” on cardboard walls, and a mock dig where youngsters can unearth various types of artifacts.
