Museum Curator Spills the Dirt

When: Wed., April 6 2011

Think you know your Ohio history? Sure, you can rattle off Tribe stats or who killed Danny Greene. But that's nothing compared to the stuff that Brian Redmond knows. As curator and head of archeology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Dr. Redmond specializes in things that happened way before your granny was born. Tonight, Redmond will discuss the results of his recent field work in a lecture called Ancient Woodland Earthworks of Northern Ohio. The 7 p.m. talk will examine the Heckleman prehistoric Native American site in Milan, Ohio, along with some intriguing 2,000-year-old remains and artifacts that were found there. A reception and Q&A will follow. Tickets are $6 for members; $8 for non-members; college types with ID are admitted free. Register online at cmnh.org. The museum is at 1 Wade Oval Dr. in University Circle. — Delaney
