October 26, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Richfield Fire Hall
This presentation will introduce you to petroglyphs discovered in Waterloo, Wisconsin. Dale Van Holten, assistant to Dr. Jack Steinbring, Archeologist and Anthropologist at Ripon College, is in charge of the ongoing Hensler Petroglyph Site discoveries in Waterloo, Wisconsin at the privately owned Michael’s Quarry. Tedious digging, sifting, and carbon testing at the site have brought to life century old artifacts that tell a story of early Native American life. The quartzite bedrock of the quarry contains artifacts (a panel of 33) that were created by people living 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. These artifacts are known as “petroglyphs,” and are crude story symbols of such things as mammals and birds that provide us today a view of forms expressed by Native American people who first called this land home.
