Event Description

One thousand years ago, the cultivation of maize and a suite of domesticated native plants accelerated a change in the native American way of life. Archaeological research in Illinois and elsewhere has shed light on plant domestication, the rise of larger communities with year-around residents and change in everyday life. This class will highlight archaeological field work and the discovery of extraordinary objects.

Presented by Michael Wiant, Director of Dickson Mounds Museum, Interim Director State Museum.
