The Williamson County Archaeological Society presents The Harpeth River Archaic with guest speaker Prehistoric Archaeologist Aaron Deter-Wolf of the TN Division of Archaeology. He will present a slide accompanied lecture.
“The Archaic is the longest prehistoric period in the American Southeast, lasting from about 8000 to 1000 BC. Over this span, the Harpeth River watershed in Williamson and Davidson Counties was home to a series of regional cultures, which can be identified archaeologically based on site types and burial practices.
This presentation will discuss research and excavations at Archaic sites along the Harpeth and its tributaries.”
The WCAS meeting will be held at the Williamson County Library in Franklin, Tennessee. Join them in the meeting room on the first floor to the right of the foyer as you enter the library.
