Louisiana Archaeology Month is taking place throughout October 2017 and we encourage you to find an event near you! Louisiana Archaeology Month strives to promote interest in our state’s archaeological past, as well as educate communities on the wonderful historic and prehistoric remains found in our very own communities.
The Louisiana Archaeological Society, in conjunction with State Parks, USFS Kisatchie National Forest, and the Office of Cultural Development have arranged a special Archaeological Clean-Up Day at the Marksville State Historic Site. The clean up day is scheduled to take place on October 22, 2017 from 10-4pm. During the Marksville site clean up day, volunteers will be provided with a brief tour of the Marksville site and it's historical significance, followed by the removing and clearing up all sorts of green debris from the site. You are encouraged to bring a hat, a pair of gloves, wear proper outdoor clothes and closed-toe shoes, and even your favorite gardening shears to help us clean up Marksville! There will be food and refreshments available for volunteers, but feel free to pack your own lunch and beverages of choice. You can find more information about the days event by visiting the LAS website: laarchaeologicalsociety.org. The point of contact for the Clean Up day is the LAS Treasurer, Beverly Clement.
