The Rock River Archeological Society (RRAS), a chapter of the Wisconsin Archeological Society, is a not for profit organization for anyone who is interested in archeology and/or human history.
It resonates with those who hope to preserve what remains of past human cultures through public education, events, and programs. RRAS offers monthly meetings, field trips, and weekend events to learn about evidence left behind by both ancient and historic people. It allows those interested to put clues together, like a puzzle, to solve some of the fascinating mysteries of the past. RRAS presents speakers and events covering archeology from the local area, Wisconsin, and around the world. Membership includes voting rights and a monthly newsletter. Membership forms are available at all meetings and events.
Meetings are held each month from September through April. They are usually on the third Wednesday, in the lower level auditorium of the Horicon Education and Visitor Center on Hwy. 28 between Horicon and Mayville. These are always free and open to the public and begin at 7:00 pm. After a brief business meeting, guests enjoy a speaker, followed by snacks and camaraderie.
Our 2016 speaker schedule is:
February 17 Don Gehrke - “Marker Trees”
March 16 Gary Henschel – “Henschel Site”
April 20 Ray Glazner “The Fur Trade (1600-1840)”
May Archeology Tour
Schedule may be subject to changes due to weather/speaker circumstances.
