Firelands Archaeological Research Center (FARC) Announces the 5th Annual Ohio Archaeology Dinner on Thursday, October 9, 2014 at 6:30 PM at the Amherst Sandstone Village Grange Hall located at 763 Milan Avenue, Amherst, Ohio 44001.
Special Guest Speaker: Ms. Carrie Sowden, Nautical Archaeologist. Carrie is the Archaeological Director of the Peachman Lake Erie Shipwreck Research Center of the Great Lakes Historical Society and a MAST (Maritime Archaeology Survey Team) coordinator.
Presentation: “The Anthony Wayne: Fact and Fiction” The Anthony Wayne was a side-wheel steamer that sank in 1850 in Lake Erie near Vermilion, Ohio, killing 38 people. Instantly destroyed by boiler explosions, the vessel was enroute from Toledo, OH to Buffalo, NY. Were there thousands of dollars of gold coins on board? Why did the new boilers explode? Join us as we explore what is known, what is believed, and what facts have emerged from the archaeology field work.
Dinner: A unique dinner will be provided that includes many native foods, prepared in a modern, gourmet style.
The FARC lab, also located at the Amherst Sandstone Village, will be open from 5:30 – 6:30 PM before the event. Visitors can see many diverse artifacts that reveal the history of the people that have lived in our area for centuries. Tickets for this event are $18.00 per person and include the lecture, dinner and beverages. Seating is limited so please make reservations early!
