Rock River Archeological Society



January 2016 vol. 16 no. 1


Rock River was a beautiful country. I loved my towns, my cornfields, and the home of my people. I fought for it. It is now yours. Keep it as we did.

Greetings from the President
 



   Our new year starts for Rock River Archeological Society on Jan. 20th when Glen Oeschner does a program on the Atlatl.  We all might remember that Glen and his side-kick are on hand to teach young and old how to use this spear-thrower at our Fall two day event.

    Also, a reminder that our newsletter will now come to you every-other month.  You will be sure to want to make a note that Don Gehrke will be talking about "Marker Trees" on February 17, 2016.

    January will be the last month to order your T-Shirt and now we offer lots of colors.  The order blank can be found in this newsletter and you can pay when you order or when you receive your T-Shirt.  I am looking forward to wearing my "pink" one on January 20th.

    Everyone is encouraged to bring a "friend" to the programs.  Lots happens at every meeting and all who come find a "friend".

January 20th Program: The Atlatl

Presented by Glen Oeschner
 

Glen Oeschner of Campbells Port will be doing a program on the atlatl for the Rock River Archaeological Society on January 20, 2016 at 7:00 PM. Glen is very interested in the Atlatl and its history. He will talk about

and demonstrate (what is possible to do



 

indoors) this Stone Age artefact that is used as a hunting weapon and requires skill rather than muscle power alone. A definition of the Atlatl is "a tool that uses leverage to achieve greater velocity in dart-throwing, and includes a bearing surface which allows the user to store energy during the throw." A spear-thrower is a long-range weapon and can readily impart to a projectile speed of over 93 mph.



This is a program that all will find interesting. Members of the Rock River Archaeological Society are encouraged to bring a friend.

A Farewell Note from our Secretary

Bonnie Katzman




Seventeen years ago Bill Volkert sent out a news release asking anyone interested to attend an initial meeting to help organize an archeology group. He presented an outline stating his goals and ideas. I became a member of the bylaws committee along with seven others. The bylaws were drawn up, accepted, and RRAS chosen as the name of this new organization. Little did I know then that I would be treasurer until now. Throughout that time, I’ve been fortunate to meet and work with a wonderful group of people, members like you, whose continued efforts have made RRAS what it is today. It’s like having an extended family. I look forward to our future meetings and all the interesting contributions our members so willingly share.

 Thank you to Rose Rentmeester who agreed to become the next treasurer. I have no doubt she will do a fantastic job. Thanks also to Catherine Salapa who filled in for me on several occasions and to both she and Jayne for choosing my wonderful gifts from RRAS (a shelf, 2 necklaces, two leather pouches, a box decorated with wolves and several beautiful stones). You certainly know my interests.

 RRAS is successful because of the dedicated members we have now, and have had, throughout the years. Without you we could not continue to thrive.

 All your kindness and support have been greatly appreciated.

 



Thanks Catherine!


 Catherine Salapa has served as a board member and over the years has contributed a great deal to RRAS. She has unselfishly devoted many hours to help our society grow. Some of the many things that can be attributed to her work for us are: finding many of the speakers not only for our meetings, but also for our weekend, contacting all the vendors to help expand our weekend, contributing food, money, and all the paper plates and napkins we have been using for several years,

providing most of the door prizes each year at our December road show, helping to write up our newsletters, and much more. Although she prefers to do all this anonymously it is time to say thanks. She has decided to give up the board position and has asked Bonnie to complete it for her. She will

continue to help RRAS out, but would like some extra time to pursue her artistic talents.

A big thank you from all of us at RRAS!
 

 

*Important Newsletter Update!

Rock River Archeological Society newsletters will be sent on a bi-monthly basis beginning this month, January 2016. Look for your next newsletter in March.




February Speaker, Don Gehrke "Marker Trees" What else did these trees communicate to people as they passed by them? Don has spent much time on land around the Horicon Marsh and on the Rock River. He was intrigued by certain older trees that stood out from other trees by their shape and location. The 3rd removal of the Native Americans from the Horicon area happened



in 1880. Some of the Marker trees are over 200 years old that are still around the Horicon Marsh. One tree is still in the City of Horicon. The Native Americans understood tree-talk. What the tree is about and the placement. Marks were left by the surveyors and the early pioneers on trees in this area. Even people today plant trees in their yards in honor of a family member that has passed on. Don has found more information through reading books about Marker trees. Also from land owners that have Marker trees on their property. He will have pictures of local Marker trees and share info about them.

Join the Rock River Archeological Society on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center, lower level for Don’s presentation.

December 2015 Newsletter

                               December vol. 15  no. 12
Rock River was a beautiful country. I loved my towns, my cornfields, and the home of my people.  I fought for it.  It is now yours.  Keep it as we did.
                                                                                        - Chief Black Hawk


    November Meeting Re-Cap:
David Mickelson

RRAS meetings often include experts who speak about archeology and the early people of Wisconsin, but not often do we hear how the landscapes these people used came to be.  Our November meeting featured David Mickelson of UW Madison and his knowledge of Wisconsin’s formation and changes through the years.  
David began his talk and slide show way back in the beginning.  It was fascinating to learn that long ago, Wisconsin was below the equator and facing in another direction!  These conditions helped to leave behind some of the sand and other materials that would later form our great state.  We learned of the mountain ranges that once called Wisconsin home 2.8 billion years ago, and how rocks we see here were formed, such as the Baraboo Quartzite around Devil’s Lake that formed from the heating of sand from tropical seas that once covered the area.  David explained how some of the fossils we find in Wisconsin were formed, and the strange sea creatures that left them behind.  
Perhaps the most fascinating part of David’s speech was the great detail he went into about how  glaciers in Wisconsin changed and formed the state as we know it today.  The picking up of rocks, sand and other materials (erratics) on the bottom of glaciers that then scraped and carved such land features as eskers, kettles, drumlins and many other geological features was amazing.  As these great ice sheets advanced, people could travel across oceans and other bodies of water to enter North America  and as the glaciers finally retreated, the Paleo Indian people hunted and lived across the landscape.   
After David’s talk, he signed copies of his book,

Geology of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.  RRAS thanks David for his interesting talk and the knowledge he shared with us all.  

Annual Archeology Road Show Is Coming on December 9th!
Check out these tall tools from our 2014 Road Show!
Are Mom’s Mayan mugs muddling up your mud room?  Have Pop’s paintings been making you ponder?   Did Uncle Frank fall into a fishing lure frenzy?  Then it’s time to grab it and bring it to the Archeology Road Show!
    Each December, RRAS hosts a fun and interactive road show event.  Unlike a similarly named event on TV, this isn’t an appraisal, but a chance to show off and learn about the interesting things we have hidden in our houses!  Everyone in attendance is welcome to bring one or two items or collections of items to share.  One at a time, participants come to the front of the room to show and talk about their item.  If you’re not sure what it is, our audience of experts will try to help you figure out what you have and what it was used for in the past.  Some ideas include ancient stone tools, military relics, jewelry, farm tools,
or anything else that is old and interesting (but not including Grandpa Gus!)


We usually have at least one mystery item that is tough to figure out, so please bring your expertise and come down to the show!
    After the road show we feature delicious pot luck for everyone in attendance to enjoy.  Please bring a dish or snack to share, and join in the festivities!  The road show will be held on Wednesday, December 9th at 7:00 p.m. in the lower level of the Horicon Marsh Visitor Center on Highway 28 between Mayville and Horicon.  Our meetings are free and open to the public.  
    Don’t forget to dig out those dusty dolls and cobweb covered candlesticks and bring them down to the Rock River Road Show!

The Sand Creek Massacre

By: John & Joan Brusoe

Two cultures, one land. The Great Plains of the 1880's was the prize and the scene of both struggle and accord between the Native Americans, and the United States. During a recent visit to Boulder, Colorado, John and Joan Brusoe received permission from the Boulder Historical Society to use their material regarding the Sand Creek Massacre. They will present an overview of the Society's award winning presentation on the Sand Creek Massacre.

The Sand Creek Massacre occurred on November 29, 1864 (150 yrs. ago), when hundreds of Colorado militiamen attacked a peaceful village of Cheyenne and Arapaho people encamped in the southeastern Colorado Territory. An estimated 70-163 native Americans, of whom about two-thirds were women and children, were killed. The location has been designated the Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site, and is administered by the National Park Service. Joan and Joan are Members of RRAS with John serving as secretary and board member. They both volunteer at the Fond du Lac Historical Society.

Please call 920-387-7893 for more information. Bring a friend, and we hope to see you there! More information about the RRAS can be found on its blog at http://rockriverarch.blogspot.com , rras.president@gmail.com or “Like” us on Facebook. Lectures are free and open to the public.

Previous Month’s Speaker:
Artifacts and the Stories They Tell

By: Don Gehrke
Don gave a wonderful presentation to a smaller crowd last month. He had many great local artifacts to show, among which were a child’s pair of moccasins, a Native fishing weight (at right in photo), glass fishing net implements, and many more great items. Don is a local historian who had many great stories to tell about local people, places and things.

He has contributed to a book based on the local history of the Horicon area, and continues to be a respected and valued member of the community and of Rock River Archaeological Society along with his wife, Pearl. Through his artifacts and related stories, one felt transported on many great journeys with Don around the Horicon area. Thank you, Don, for an informative evening.

Nov. 2014 Newsletter



Rock River Archeological Society November 2014 Volume 14 Issue 11

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

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?

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!

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
