ANNOUNCING THE 2001 FALL MEMBERSHIP MEETING AND SYMPOSIUM
The 2001 Fall Membership meeting of the OAC will be held on Saturday, November 17th in the multipurpose room of the Highbanks Metropark, which is located about three miles north of I-270 on Route 23 in Delaware County. Coffee and donuts will be available at 9:30 a.m. The Business Meeting will begin at 11:00 a.m. This year's meeting will feature presentations on Current Research in Ohio Archaeology. OAC members are encouraged to give a 10 to 15 minute presentation on their current projects in Ohio archaeology. These presentations are meant to be informal, concise, and informative updates of on-going archaeo-logical projects. The use of audio-visual aids such as slides or over-heads is encouraged but not required. This program is intend-ed to foster pro-ductive interaction and information-sharing among all active archaeologists (professional and nonprofessional) within our state.
The Highbanks Metropark features the Highbanks earthworks, a Woodland semicircular earthen enclosure. A lunchtime tour to view the earthworks will be led by Martha Otto. Anyone interested in taking the tour is encouraged to bring a sack lunch and picnic on the park grounds.
Abstracts of the symposium presentations will be published in the March 2002 issue of the OAC Newsletter.
Any member interested in making a presentation should provide a title and a short (100 word max.) abstract of their presentation to Brian Redmond by November 9, 2001. Presentations will be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis, so don't delay. Please send or e-mail abstracts to:
