**CANCELLED** Archaeology at the Gehring Site
Madison County Historical Society
Julie Zimmermann, Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville will discuss what has been found at the Gehring site which is located on the SIUE campus between Cahokia Creek and the bluff, eight miles north of Cahokia Mounds. The SIUE archaeology field school investigations show the site was used from late PaleoIndian through historic periods, but most intensively during the Middle Woodland (ca. 2000 years ago) and Mississippian periods (ca. 1000 years ago). Zimmerman will discuss what items have been found and what those items tell us about these early residents of our area.
