Archaeolgical Society to meet Thursday

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan-Johnson County chapter of the Wyoming Archaeological Society will meet Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Le Gourmet Room of the Sheridan Holiday Inn.

Dinner can be ordered from the menu if you wish to have a meal.

About 7:15 p.m., Sheridan archaeologist Colin Ferriman will give a presentation about the Athabaskan migration.

Language studies have shown native people speaking Athabaskan language variations from northwestern Canadan tribes to the Apache and Navajo tribes of the American southwest.

Ferriman will also discuss physical evidence of these people found in this region, including rock art and Avonlea point types.

Ferriman graduated with a bachelor’s degree in archaeology in 2001 and received his master’s degree in applied archaeology in 2006 from Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, N.M.

He is the director of operations for Cultural Resource Analysts, Inc.’s Sheridan office.

Reservations are not required and the public is invited.
