Two of our t-shirt drawing winners! Michael Schumacher and Peter Bleed.

Magda Mahoney won the water bottle donated by the Midwest Archeological Center!

Nolan Johnson won the final t-shirt in our drawing! 

Crowds enjoyed great food and drinks while celebrating archaeology together.

Soon there weren't enough chairs for everyone... 

Great time to catch up with colleagues and meet new folks.

Thank you to Ploughshare Brewing Co. for allowing us to invade! 

A great time was had by all and we hope to see everyone at other vents throughout the month of September!

  1. Fort Atkinson was the first United States Army post to be established west of the Missouri River in the unorganized region of the Louisiana Purchase of the United States. Located just east of present-day Fort Calhoun, Nebraska, the fort was erected in 1819 and abandoned in 1827. The site is now known as Fort Atkinson State Historical Park and is a National Historic Landmark. A replica fort was constructed by the state at the site during the 1980s–1990s.

    The post, which included soldiers, traders, trappers, and other frontier people, has been credited by the Nebraska State Legislature as the first town in Nebraska. Founded almost 30 years before the creation of the Nebraska Territory, Fort Atkinson had more than 1,000 residents. It included a brickyard, lime kiln, stone quarry, grist mill, saw mill, and cooper shop
