April 11th Program
The Ancient Artifact Preservation Society will host an educational program on Saturday, April 11th from 3-5 pm at the PWPL community room. This program was originally scheduled for Feb. 14, but the Valentine€'s blizzard forced it'€™s rescheduling.  Admission is free.  "The Mystic Symbol: The Mark of the Michigan Mound Builders" is a documentary by Ancient American Magazine Founder Wayne May.  The film relates the story of thousands of artifacts unearthed in mounds all across the Lower Peninsula of Michigan in the late 1800’s, mostly by farmers and laymen.   It is also possibly the largest single archaeological disaster in America'€™s pre-history, as these artifacts which are mainly comprised of clay, copper, and slate were almost immediately declared a hoax.  The film also contains rare video of the Michigan Artifacts while on display at the State Museum at Lansing, Michigan. We encourage participants to bring in artifacts, photographs, or other material for a "show and tell" session after the main program.  For more information about the AAPS, or the educational programs, visit www.aapscopper.org, or contact Sue Belanger at (906) 235-7927. 

This January marks the beginning of the 3rd annual Ancient Artifact Preservation Society's Educational series.  The series will again include one event per month January through May, and will take place on the following Saturdays in Marquette at the Peter White Public Library Community Room 3:00-5:00 pm.

* The first event on January 10 was a very well received documentary film by the Canadian Broadcast Company about Archaeologist Pat Sutherlands work on a newer Norse site on Baffin Island, and the controversy surrounding it. 
* This year we are encouraging participants to share in a “show and tell” section at the end of the main event.  Please bring in your artifacts, photographs and anything else relating to Ancient America that you believe the group would find interesting


The Ancient Artifact Preservation Society is a non-profit founded by local historian Fred Rydholm.  Its mission is to collect and preserve evidence of ancient civilizations in North America, and the Great Lakes region in particular, in a manner that supports their study by amateur and professional scholars, and to educate the public about their significance.

Goals of the AAPS Educational series include:
  • ·        to provide interesting historical presentations to the public free of charge
  • ·        to promote AAPS and its fall conference (Oct. 9-11, 2015)
  • ·        to educate about artifact preservation best practices
  • ·        to provide contacts for the public who may have or find artifacts

For more information about the Marquette events contact Sue. If you have an idea for an educational event, please contact us!
