SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The Prehistoric Indian Village in Mitchell will be hosting a series of events this weekend to raise awareness about archaeology.

The village’s annual Archaeology Awareness Days are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.

The scheduled programs include flint knapping demonstrations and spear-throwing lessons. Visitors will also get a chance to make pottery in the same way that the occupants of the village did.

The Prehistoric Indian Village is a 1,000-year-old Native American village being excavated by students from England’s University of Exeter and Augustana University in Sioux Falls. Excavations take place each summer from mid-June to mid-July.

The two-day event will also include a presentation on Native American women’s culture. Visitors can also take artifacts they own to have them identified by archaeologists and researchers.
