The Sheffield site and Oneota archaeology in the St. Croix Valley
Presented by Dr. Ed Fleming, Science Museum of Minnesota

People of the Oneota culture lived in the Midwest between 400 and 1000 years ago.Clusters of their massive farming villages once dominated the river valleys and prairie landscapes of southern Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa (AD 1100 – 1500).The Sheffield site is an anomaly as the only large Oneota site known within the woodlands of the St. Croix valley, and differs from its southern cousins in a number of ways.This lecture will discuss current archaeological studies of this interesting site by the Science Museum of Minnesota.

The presentation is free and open to the public. It will take place at the St. Croix River Association office, 230 South Washington Street, Unit 1, in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin (next to the St. Croix Falls Public Library).
