Archeological Dig in Blytheville

June 15, 2004--Posted at 5:00 p.m. CDT  

BLYTHVILLE  -- Arkansas is known in some circles for its civil war history, but have you ever thought about the natural state's history before the war? There are ten archeological research stations across the state, and each year those stations bid to have their area explored by archeologist. This year the station in Blytheville won the bid. 

      About seventy members of the Arkansas Archeological Society are participating in this annual  research project. They're excavating artifacts like pottery and tools from the Eaker site in Mississippi County-- and amateurs are learning the craft by working side-by-side with professionals. If you would like to attend their open house the information is below:
