Shoals Archaeological Stewardship

July 11 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Shoals Archaeological Stewardship: Dr. Michaelyn Harle
Archaeological stewardship is a historic preservation movement that is focused on the protection of archaeological sites for future generations. While historic buildings are threatened with removal, alteration, and neglect, archaeological sites face a different set of risks from environmental factors and human destruction. Protecting our archaeological sites and resources is an important part of understanding our history and investing in future generations.

To raise awareness about archaeological efforts in the Shoals area, and to foster a sense of archaeological stewardship, the Florence Indian Mound Museum is partnering with the Tennessee Valley Authority on a series of lectures. These monthly presentations will take place at the Florence Indian Mound Museum and are free to the public. The first lecture will feature TVA archaeologist Dr. Michaelyn Harle, who will present her talk, The People of the New Deal Archaeological Excavations in the Tennessee Valley on Thursday, July 25th at 6 pm. This talk will explore early TVA field work excavations in the Shoals region.
