“What’s in your dirt?”

Dr. David Moore, Professor of Archeology at Warren-Wilson College, will be the speaker on the topic of “What’s in Your Dirt”. He provides insight into what they might find in their garden dirt. The Appalachian Summit Region has yielded artifacts dating back some 13,000 years and has been occupied by numerous indigenous cultures. He presents a chronology of these cultures and insight into artifacts associated with them. Additionally, David will speak about a recent discovery in which he has been a principal investigator. The remains of Fort San Juan, built in the year 1567, the first known European settlement in the interior of the present United States are being excavated near Morganton, NC.
Remember to screen your dirt. No telling what’s in there.
