Lecture at the Grave Creek Mound

March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free
By John Boleigh, Archaeologist for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Mineral Resources

Over 5300 years ago, a man now known as Oetzi was murdered and died in the Austrian Alps where his body became mummified by being covered by glacial ice. Today, Oetzi’s body, clothing, and tools indicate that he was a hunter and a traveler. A closer look at his traveling gear draws parallels with camping gear used today and teaches us about survival skills that have been practiced for thousands of years.

This program is FREE and Open to the Public!
