Join Julie Zimmermann, Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, in discussing artifacts found at the Gehring site, located on the SIUE campus between Cahokia Creek and the bluff (8 miles north of Cahokia Mounds).
The Gehring site saw its most intensive use during the Middle Woodland (ca. 2000 years ago) and Mississippian periods (ca. 1000 years ago). Zimmerman will discuss items found at the site and what they reveal about early residents in our area.
