Archeology Program: “Late Prehistoric Villages of Central Indiana” will be presented by Dr. Robert G. McCullough of the Illinois State Archaeological Survey. After A.D. 1000, the population of central Indiana exploded with the advent of maize agriculture. Archaeological investigations have revealed evidence of hundreds of settlements, some with circular plazas and fortifications, along river floodplains suitable for farming. An overview of the last two decades of archaeology will be given.
