SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Students from the University of Exeter in England will be excavating at the Prehistoric Indian Village in Mitchell this week to raise awareness about archaeology.

The village is hosting its annual Archaeology Awareness Days Saturday and Sunday. Archaeologists and primitive technologists will give presentations during the event.

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

Mike Marshall is a consultant to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian and a well-known Lakota artist and historian. Marshall is expected to demonstrate the games played by the ancestors of his people during the event.

The event will also feature pottery making exhibits and spear throwing lessons.
