Mike Smith, senior architectural archaeologist, and Madeline Evans, senior lithic research analyst, recently visited Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery in Champaign to help owners Leslie Cooperband and Wes Jarrell identify a collection of artifacts that came into their possession as they expanded their farm operation. They hope to include educational information at the farm about these items as part of their public programming in the future.
If you have questions about an artifact, you can Ask an Archaeologist using our short online form. If you have an extensive collection of artifacts from known locations and would like more information about these items, or would like to help contribute to the archaeological record of Illinois, please contact a staff member to discuss documenting your collection.
Madeline Evans and Mike Smith identify and photograph artifacts.
