Darke County Parks to Host Local Archeologist Book Signing

Join author and leading female Ohio archeologist, Elaine Holzapfel for a book signing and presentation on her second book, Archeology and Artifacts of Darke County and Vicinity on Saturday, April 16th at 1pm at the Shawnee Prairie Preserve Nature Center. She’s been interested in prehistoric artifacts and the people who produced them since childhood. After retiring from teaching, Elaine met Bob Converse, editor of “The Ohio Archeologist,” and he convinced her to further her studies. Elaine now holds a master’s degree in anthropology from Ball State University and has contributed a number of scholarly articles to “The Ohio Archeologist.” Mr. Bob Converse will speak during the first hour of this unique book signing event. The public is invited to bring their own artifact collections to have them reviewed by Elaine and Bob.

A limited number of her first book and her newest edition will be available in the gift shop prior and during the event. The first book, titled Archeology and Artifacts of Darke County, will sell for $20 plus tax, and her new book will sell for $30 plus tax. To pick up your own copy, visit the Friends of the Darke County Parks gift shop anytime Monday through Saturday from 9am-5pm. For questions about this program or any other program offered by the Darke County Parks, please stop by the nature center, or call them at (937) 548-0165.
