There will be 100 tables of prehistoric artifacts on display in Seward on August 22nd for the 11th annual Nebraska Artifact Show. Kevin Hammond is the president of the Nebraska Archaeological Society and says several organizations are taking part to make the event a success including the Nebraska State Historical Society, the Midwest Archaeological Center of the National Park Service and the University of Nebraska State Museum.
Hammond says this is an educational show and there will be no buying or selling of artifacts permitted. There will be 100 tables of prehistoric artifacts on display as well as fossil items from six states. A number of the private artifact collections are considered world class and are rarely available for public viewing.
Hammond adds this is a wonderful opportunity for those attending to bring personal artifacts they would to be identified and have individual questions answered. Archaeologists and a paleontologist will be available.
Everyone is invited to this educational, fun family event. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase by a local youth group.
The Nebraska Artifact Show will be held at the Seward County Fairgrounds from 9 am until 5 pm. Adult admission is $3 and children 12 and under is free.
