Artifact ID event slated for September

An anthropological artifact identification workshop will be presented Sept. 21 by the Mud Creek chapter of the Kansas Anthropological Association.

People with artifacts they’d like to have identified may bring them to the workshop between 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. Sept. 21 at Kauffman Museum, 300 E. 27th St., North Newton. There they can speak with professional archeologists and experienced amateur archeologists from the association.

Collectors can bring Native American artifacts, early historic period items, or antiques for assistance in identification and dating.

Archeologists will also make suggestions for cataloging and maintaining collections.

Items will not be appraised and no sales will be made.

No admission is charged for the identification event, but people who want to tour the museum can do so at the admission price of $4 for adults and $2 for children 6 to 16.

Kansas Anthropological Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1955. Membership information will be available at the event.
