You can watch, and even participate, in an archaeological dig experience in Sturgeon Bay this week. The “Stories of the People of the Cove Estuary” is the theme of an educational outreach program at Crossroads at Big Creek that begins on Wednesday. The dig will be held at the Cove Estuary Preserve between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. on weekdays from May 10 through May 18. Bob Jeske, a retired professor from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, explained last fall the significant finds the excavation has uncovered in the past seven years.
Crossroads will also be highlighting other stories of the Late Woodland Native American people. Their history in Door County which dates back more than 1,000 years, will be featured during free daily tours at the Bertha and Hans Hanson House from 2:00-4:00 until Thursday, May 18.
