September is Indiana Archaeology Month!
Join us for a talk with archaeologist Wade Tharp from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. He will discuss what archaeology is (and what it is not), explore prehistoric and historic archaeology in Indiana and in Hendricks County, provide an overview of the laws that protect and preserve Hoosier archaeological resources, and reveal how you can get involved in archaeology.
Tharp has been with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology, since 2010. He graduated with a B.A. in Liberal Arts (Anthropology major, Classical Studies minor) from Indiana University (Indianapolis), and graduated with a M.A. in Historical Archaeology from Illinois State University. His research interests include critical theory in historical archaeology, the archaeology of internal colonization, and French vernacular architecture.
The program is part of the Celebrate the Bicentennial at DPL and is sponsored by the Indiana Room at Danville Public Library. Due to the library’s construction project, the program will be held at the Crawley Business Center in the Visit Hendricks County building at 8 West Main Street in Danville. The door is located on the east side of the building.
