Next Meeting

Bill Harris, Annette Butts, and Carol Patterson
Second Annual Members' Potpourri of Archaeology Sites in France, Australia, and the Uncompahgre Plateau
February 21, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.
Baldridge Hall, Montrose United Methodist Church
(at the corner of S. 1st Street and Park Avenue)

These will be three short illustrated talks by chapter members about their own adventures. Come and catch a taste of our members' tours of the rock artistry of southern France and Northern Queensland, Australia, as well as field trips to find and record several important local sites that were excavated by local archaeologists, the Huschers, in 1939 and then "lost" to science. This fun, informal meeting will have refreshments. The business meeting starts promptly at 7:00, so please come a little early and get your refreshments so each speaker can have 20 minutes!
