Artifact Identification

January 22, 2022

Have you found any neat projectile points, beads, plummets, pottery, or ceramic objects that you want to show off? Are you unsure of what you’ve found? On Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022, visitors are invited to share their finds as part of an Artifact ID program at Poverty Point World Heritage Site. On-site specialists will help you better understand the artifacts you find in your fields or along the banks of waterways. This program will be offered from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Participants should check in at the museum for this special program. If you want a more itemized program experience, please bring small plastic bags to separate the artifacts, sharpies to mark the bags, along with a pen and paper to takes notes.
