PERRYSBURG - The Perrysburg Area Historic Museum will sponsor archaeologist Patrick M. Tucker March 14 at 7 p.m. in the Perrysburg Way Public Library as he discusses an archaeological dig of the early settlement of the area.
This event is free and open to the public.
Tucker will present the 1977 dig that he, in collaboration with University of Toledo archaeologist David Strothers, and G. Michael Pratt, conducted of the first 1810 settlement by pioneer Amos Spafford's group on the flats below where the future Fort Meigs would be built.
The team of Tucker, Strothers and Pratt unearthed on the floodplains the physical remains of a War of 1812-era log house that was part of the Amos Spafford homestead. Items found at the site were reexamined in 2009.
This research is the subject of Tucker's presentation that he made before the 79th annual meeting of the Eastern Sates Archeological Federation in 2012.
There will be a short meeting about the progress on converting the 1823 Aurora Spafford house into a Perrysburg Area Museum. The museum groups will furnish light refreshments.
