Among the activities will be a display of items found at the Allen Tract, where the chapter's August Public Archaeology Day will be held for the second year in a row.
Preliminary analysis of the material found lead to the opinion that the site is an early French contact period Huron/Wendat village.
Last year from 2 days of screening material from a disturbed midden, chapter members found: fish bones, animal bones, carbonized corn, beans, squash and wood, pottery, lithics, a gaming piece, effigy pipe and pipe pieces. There was also rolled copper beads, copper tinkling cone, knife blades, metal arrowheads. All of this from just one disturbed midden.
