The Nebraska Archaeological Society (NAS) will hold a quarterly meeting on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at 1:30 PM at the Cairo Historical Roots Museum, Cairo, Nebraska. The museum is located at 305 Said Street, in Cairo. All meetings of the NAS are open to the general public and everyone interested in archaeology is encouraged to attend. This is a great opportunity to bring in that “arrowhead” you found this summer or “the what is it?” found down by the creek, for possible identification by members of the society.
At the conclusion of a brief business meeting, those wishing to have a tour of the museum and view their collections may do so. Display cases contain artifacts connected to the Pawnee Nation, pioneers, military, natural history, and mementos from local citizens dating from mid-1800’s until the present.. For more information on the Cairo museum, please call Mr. Walt Sorensen at 308-380-9024.
The NAS has members from all areas of Nebraska and several surrounding states and welcomes all interested persons to attend this meeting and program. The society endeavors to develop and maintain a better understanding among students and collectors of archaeological material, and professional archaeologists, as well as museums and institutions of learning.
