The Nebraska Archaeological Society invites the public to attend the 13th annual Nebraska Artifact Show on Saturday at the Seward County Fairgrounds.

The show runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adult admission is $5 and children 12 and under are free.

There will be 100 tables of prehistoric artifacts on display from seven Great Plains states in Harvest Hall, including artifacts from the extensive Shifting Sands Folsom site in Texas.

At 1:30 p.m., Dr. Bonnie Pitblado of the University of Oklahoma will give a free presentation titled “Paleoindian Use of the Rocky Mountains: Higher and Earlier Than You Thought.”

Throughout the day, expert flintknapper Jack Webster will demonstrate his techniques to make a useful stone tool. Additionally, professional archaeologists will be available to help attendees identify personal artifacts and answer questions.

Food and refreshments will be available.
