Historical archeology: ‘More than words can tell’

September 6, 2002

“More than Words Can Tell-New Insights into Missouri’s Past from Historical Archeology” will be the topic of a lecture by Joe Harl at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12.

Harl will speak at the Sappington Dressel House on the grounds of the Historic Daniel Boone Home in Defiance, MO. The lecture is part of a Lindenwood University series of forums at the Boone Home. It is being done in conjunction with Missouri Archeology Month.

Harl said historical archeology is providing new insights into the lives of early American settlers. He said historical archeology provides a way of checking written documentation and opens up new chapters of people’s lives that have never been recorded.

The presentation will discuss the excavations at the Boone Home, remains of early 19th century log cabins in St. Louis and St. Charles counties, Mark Twain’s boyhood home in Hannibal, a graveyard uncovered in St. Louis and a plantation near Waverly, MO.

For more information, contact James Gladwin at 636-949-4858.
