Students and faculty participating in the UNL Summer Field School of Archaeology are holding "Archaeology Day: People on the Prairie Edge" today. The free, public event will showcase how people have survived on the prairie.
"People on the Prairie Edge" is noon to 3 p.m., today at Reller Prairie. The prairie is one mile southwest of Sprague on Southwest 29th Street. Participants should enter the prairie from the west, off of S.W. 29th Street.
Archaeologists participating in the Summer Field School will demonstrate how people survived on wild foods, used wood and stone tools, and made use of bison. The event is hands on, with participants getting the opportunity to dig with the archaeologists.
In the event of rain, the Archaeology Day event will be noon to 3 p.m., June 15.
