Central Mississippi Valley Archeological Society presents 'Salvaging Kreb's Place'

Sept. 16, 2009 -- The Central Mississippi Valley Archeological Society CMVAS) will hold its first meeting of the 2009-10 academic year with a special lecture, "Salvaging Kreb's Place: A Middle Mississippian (circa A.D. 1200) village in Craighead County, Arkansas," on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m., in the ASU Museum, Room 182. The museum is located at 110 Cooley Drive, Jonesboro. This lecture is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided.

Dr. Julie Morrow, ASU's station archeologist, will present the evening's program. In late August 2008, the Arkansas Archeological Society-Jonesboro Station was granted permission to excavate portions of a 13th century village on the Cache River near Egypt, Ark. Dr. Morrow's informal presentation will highlight the field work and lab work conducted on excavated deposits. Artifacts will be on display from the site.

Information about the 2009 meeting of the Arkansas Archeological Society (AAS) in Eureka Springs and opportunities for field and lab work this fall at the AAS lab in the ASU Museum will alsobe announced.

"The first meeting of the academic year is an excellent time to join the society," said Dr. Morrow.
