November Speaker:


Karen Hartman

"Finding Beauty within Raw Materials"
Karen has become a popular national speaker at conferences, conventions, schools, libraries, and senior gatherings all across America. Her interactive presentation style not only entertains but keeps her listeners engaged. She is the author and publisher of enchanting books and stories that take us on a journey through life situations that span generations. She draws on her Chinese/Cherokee heritage as she weaves stories that teach as well as entertain. Her books are written for the whole family to enjoy and to create special memories.

Karen’s program tells how American Indians lived off the land making use of everything around them. Many people still follow these traditions by using the materials available today. For example, a deer can be used either as food to eat, be mounted or the hide tanned. In addition, it provides leather, tools, sinew, shields, bags, clothing and so much more.

Karen has a fine collection of Native American artifacts and raw materials such as hides, arrowheads, horns, porcupine quills, beads, and birch bark—to name a few. Learn how these items were used in the daily life of our earliest American residents and how they are used today. She masterfully explains how to live off the land using what nature alone provides.
Join the Rock River Archeological Society on Wednesday, November 19, at 7:00 p.m. at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center for Karen’s presentation.Rock River Archeological Society November 2014 Volume 14 Issue 11

Upcoming Events
December 10

Archeology Road Show
Mark your calendars!!

RRAS Archeology Road Show is Coming!!!
Do cobwebs cover the copper kettle in your crawl space? Are dust bunnies dancing over your deceased Aunt Dora’s dishes? Is Grandpa Ron’s World War II rifle rotting in the rafters?
It’s time to dig it out and bring it in to the Rock River Archeology Road Show, 2012, Potpourri Edition!

The annual road show is a special program we hold each year in December that features members and guests and their favorite artifacts from the attic! Remember that an artifact is any object that has been made or modified by humans, so it can include just about any cool thing you may have! Each person in attendance is welcome to bring in one or two artifacts to share with everyone, one at a time. We will have special guest "artifact experts" who can help to identify some of our items. Audience members are also experts in everything from antique weapons to farm tools to pottery. You never know what you might see at the road show, what mystery items we may encounter, and what interesting things we may learn about them! Mark Wednesday, December 10th at 7:00 on your calendar and dig out those dusty doorknobs and pick through those peculiar paintings! See you at the show!

Road Show Reception
Traditionally after the annual RRAS Archeology Road Show, we have a delicious smorgasbord of yummy treats to celebrate the holiday season. Members and guests are encouraged to bring a snack or baked good to share with everyone. Our road show and reception is always a wonderful night of history, wonder, and camaraderie. We hope to see you there! Rock River Archeological Society November 2014 Volume 14 Issue 11

THANK YOU

RRAS has remarkably generous members and visitors. Since last September general donations totaled $170 and our speaker fund totaled $214. Two speakers returned their fee of $50 each, several members covered the City Hall room rental for Mr. Volkert’s program, and a donation that was made to the Satterlee Clark House for opening the museum to view their artifact collection. Also, all of our cups, napkins and plates, some postage, as well as the cost of a motel room (for one of our speakers who had too far to travel home following our meeting) were covered. We have wonderful treats and soda donated at each meeting and have countless hours donated in other miscellaneous jobs.

The DNR and the Friends group also contributed to our society's successful year. They provided their facilities, ran our newsletters and brochures, helped promote our meetings, and made sure the doors were scheduled to open for each meeting.

RRAS is truly appreciative for your contributions.

THANK YOU

This is our last newsletter for the summer!

Please watch your local newspaper for upcoming events. Emails will be sent as information is made available.Rock River Archeological Society May 2014 Volume 14 Issue 5




Recap: April Speaker

Ray Glazner

Early Man: Native Americans


Ray Glazner was born and raised in West Central New Jersey in an area inhabited by the Lenape Indians for centuries. The U.S. Continental Troops also spent two winters there. As a result, artifacts were always being found. Mr. Glazner’s personal history includes a wide variety of experiences. He spent 65 years in the Boy Scouts and became an Eagle Scout – Vigil Honor in Order of the Arrow. A Navajo family from the Navajo Reservation adopted him. He holds a BA with a double major in Social Science and Language Arts, MA in History, and an ABD (All But Dissertation) for a PHD. Ray taught Air Force Survival School, was a consultant to the Smithsonian Monthly, served as an elected town official, mined gold in New Mexico, was a volunteer fireman, a ranch hand, a hotel clerk, a businessman, and was a consultant to Hollywood (CBS Entertainment). Mr. Glazner is a published author and has traveled extensively including 49 US states and 11 foreign countries. He loves to read and maintains a 6,000 volume research library. Ray has been married for 48 years to Dr. Linda Glazner. They have two children, 5 grandchildren and reside in Wausau, WI.

Mr. Glazner’s "Early Man – Native Americans", covered Paleolithic and Neolithic Cultures. His collection includes tools, weapons, artifacts and household items from primitive man, ancient American cultures, pre - and post-Columbian cultures of the Woodland, Plains, Southeastern, Southwestern and Arctic. He presented historical documents, artifacts, authentic costumes, and personal items used by the people portrayed. These items gave a visual illustration of the early native inhabitants in our history. Thank you, Mr. Glasner, for the fun and interesting presentation!

Cultural and Natural History of the Horicon Marsh
 
 
Join us for a two-part meeting on March 26th (Please note date is not third Wednesday)



6:00-7:00: Satterlee Clark House, 322 Winter Street, Horicon to view a fantastic artifact display.

7:00: Horicon City Hall, 404 East Lake Street, Horicon to hear our speaker, Bill Volkert.

Rock River Archeology Society is happy to welcome back Bill Volkert as its March 26th speaker. Bill was the naturalist and wildlife educator for Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources at Horicon Marsh for 27 years, where he conducted more than 3,700 education programs for over 220,000 people.

He is also working on several writing projects (For more information go to naturalist@billvolkert.com).

The Horicon Marsh formed by the glaciers of the last Ice Age, was a hunting ground for Native Americans for over 10,000 years. However, in the past 150 years this marsh has been dammed and flooded to create a vast lake, over-hunted by market hunters, and then ditched and drained to convert to agricultural purposes.

People have been a part of Horicon Marsh for the past 12,000 years. Since the end of the last Ice Age, humans have relied on Horicon Marsh as a superb hunting ground. Nearly every major prehistoric Indian Culture known to the Upper Midwest is represented in the archeological record of the marsh. Horicon Marsh represents one of the greatest concentrations of effigy mounds found anywhere in the world.

Plan to join the Rock River Archeological Society for Bill’s presentation on March 26th at Horicon City Hall, 404 East Lake Street at 7:00 p.m. You may also wish to view an outstanding artifact display at the Satterlee Clark House, 322 Winter Street in Horicon previous to Bill’s talk from 6 – 7:00p.m. Please call 920-387-7893 for more information.

Recap: February Speaker

Fr. Ed Sippel & Theresa Mayer

Alaskan Gold Rush, Artifacts & History


A warm "Thank You" to Theresa Mayer and Fr. Ed Sippel for their riveting presentation on the Alaskan Gold Rush! They had a wide array of artifacts and other memorabilia from the time period for the public to peruse.

Their vivid story-telling and detailed explanations of daily life in a mining town in the late 19th century made of an exciting presentation! The story followed John L. Beau from Calvary Station, a small town northeast of Fond du Lac, along with a few other gold fever driven men from an area known as the "Holyland" (German/Catholic community that was settled in the 1840's). John L. Beau left for the Yukon in 1896 then back to Wisconsin by 1909. His letters, ship diaries, mercantile record keeping, curios of baskets and scrimshaws, native fishing and hunting tools, photos and much more have been set aside for years until recently when his grandson, Father Edward Sippel of Fond du Lac shares the exquisite collection and amazing stories.

Fr. ED and Theresa described life for many "Stampeders" as they set out from across the country and around the world to search for gold in the Klondike. During the presentation, Theresa described how hundreds of people from many different communities throughout Wisconsin set out for the gold. Thank you again for the fantastic presentation!
