Archaeology Lecture – Explore ARI (Archaeological Research Institute)

Saturday, September 9, 2023

The Guard Site is a Ft. Ancient village, first documented by Glenn Black in 1933, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and sat largely uninvestigated by professional archaeologists until the past decade. In 2012, archaeologists from Ohio State University began to systematically investigate the site and revealed a well-preserved specimen of a Ft. Ancient village via magnetometry and carefully placed excavations. Since then, the ARI has formed around the site with the intention of preserving the site and conveying to the region the importance of learning about the past through archaeology. This presentation will summarize the findings of the past decade of work at Guard and introduce how a small non-profit is changing local attitudes and experiences with archaeology.
