Artifact Identification Day to be held in Muldrow, June 11


Tuesday, June 6, 2023 - The Sequoyah County Chapter of the Oklahoma Anthropological Society is hosting the first Artifact Identification Day on Sunday, June 11. The event is set to take place at Broadway Joe's Restaurant in Muldrow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


The event is free of charge and aims to provide the opportunity for individuals who have found artifacts to gain a deeper understanding of their discoveries and Oklahoma's archaeological heritage.


During the event, local avocational archaeologists will be present to identify artifacts to the best of their ability and provide insights into the history connected to them. While the identification of projectile points can be subjective, the experts will do their best to offer accurate information.


It is important to note that experts will not be appraising or speculating on the value of items.


Artifact examinations will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, individuals are asked to limit their collections to 20 objects or less to ensure everyone has the chance to meet with the experts.


Oklahoma has a rich history that dates back over 14,000 years to the end of the last ice age, and residents often come across artifacts and evidence of the region's prehistoric and historic past.


If you would like to learn more about anthropology and archaeology, then make plans to attend the chapter's monthly meetings, which take place at Broadway Joe’s. Meetings are held on the second Sunday of each month at 6 p.m.


Broadway Joe’s Restaurant is located at 313 West Shawntel Smith Blvd. in Muldrow.
