Dr. Michael Wiant of the Illinois State Museum- Dickson Mounds Museum will present the second of a two presentation series titled: “Rediscovering Ogden-Fettie” at the August meeting of the Illinois Valley Archaeological Society.

The Ogden-Fettie site is a 2000-year-old settlement/cemetery complex located on the northern edge of the Spoon River floodplain as it enters the Illinois River valley. The site has been the subject of archaeological inquiry for more than 80 years. This May, Dickson Mounds Museum archaeologists and volunteers collected artifacts from the surface of the Ogden-Fettie site. The distribution of artifacts reveals information about the geological and cultural history of the site. In this slide illustrated presentation, Michael Wiant will briefly review the long history of archaeological study of this site and in particular the results of a recent graduate student thesis on pottery collected from the site in 1959 and 1985 and the recent surface collection.
