Archeology field school at Fool Chief’s Village

The Kansas Historical Society and the Kansas Anthropological Association will hold the annual Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Kansa site of Fool Chief’s Village (14SH305) on the north side of Topeka in Shawnee County.

Archeologists will survey and excavate the site, then clean and catalog artifacts in the laboratory at the Historical Society. The site and the laboratory will be open to the public daily June 2-17.

For more information call 785-272-8681, ext. 151. Evening archeology presentations will also be offered. Visit kshs.org/14622 for a schedule of events and locations.

The excavation site is located at the intersection of NW 25th Street and NW Menoken Road. Visitors may park in the fenced lot on the east side of Menoken Road and walk to the site.

This Kansa site was selected because of a road project at the intersection of U.S. 24 and Menoken Road, which will have a negative impact on the site.
