Louisa County was home to at least two totally different cultures long before European exploration, according to former state archaeologist Bill Green.
He presented on Sunday “Decades of Digging and Discovery,” to 28 area residents, many of whom had participated as amateurs in local archaeological work in and around Louisa County. The program was part of Archaeology Week events in the county.
According to Green, the Louisa County area is rich in archaeological sites because of its position as a junction of the Iowa and Mississippi Rivers n which would have served as major highways for prehistoric peoples who traveled on rafts and canoes.
