MAS Lecture | How to Find a Lost French Fort (and What to Do with It Once You Do)

Michael S. Nassaney, Western Michigan University
Thursday, May 20, 2021
7:30-9:00 PM
When archaeologists from Western Michigan University first discovered Fort St. Joseph in 1998, they had no idea that the site would consume their efforts for more than two decades. Archaeological investigations, interpretations, and public involvement demonstrate that the site contains important information of broad interest to students, professionals, and history enthusiasts alike. In this presentation, the principal investigator, Michael S. Nassaney, discusses how the team located and excavated Fort St. Joseph, what they learned, and the need for partnerships to sustain Michigan's archaeological heritage for future generations.

Join us for a live Zoom lecture followed by Q&A.
