Kimball Village Site Topic of Augustana Lecture Sunday

Jan 18, 2013

In the late 19-30s, archaeologists started a project north of Sioux City, Iowa. They had heard about people finding Native artifacts above ground in a few locations. Upon starting the dig, the workers found a village born sometime around the year 1150. This Sunday, Lynn Alex with the Iowa State Historical Society will speak on recent findings at the Kimball Village site. She will appear at Augustana College in Sioux Falls. Today on Dakota Digest, SDPB’s Gary Ellenbolt asks Alex about the site and what people can learn at the lecture. Alex first explains the significance of Kimball Village.

Lynn Alex of the Iowa State Historical Society will appear in Sioux Falls as part of Augustana’s "Third Sunday" series on January 20th. Her presentation begins at 2:00 PM at the school’s Gilbert Science Center.
