Archeologist to lecture on highlights
from Jones Mill site
The Central Mississippi Valley
Archeological Society presents a free public lecture by
Dr. Mary Beth
Trubitt, Arkansas Archeological Survey, Henderson State
University Station, on Wednesday, Sept. 10, ASU Museum, Room 182.
Dr. Trubitt will provide highlights of the 2008 Arkansas
Archeological Society's summer training program at the Jones Mill
site in Hot Spring County. This summer's excavations investigated
the production and exchange of stone tools. The making of chipped stone
tools from Arkansas novaculite was a focus this summer, as with the
trading of these tools with people living on the Ouachita River. In
addition, excavations at the Jones Mill site yielded information
about diet and cooking technology. For more information on this
lecture, or about the Central Mississippi Valley Archeological
Society, contact Dr. Julie Morrow,
ASU station archeologist, at ext. 2071, or see the
