About this event
Why do archeologists work for the National Park Service? Join us as Tom Thiessen presents "How the Midwest Archeological Center Came to Be," a public talk about how the reservoir salvage archeology of the Smithsonian River Basin Surveys transitioned to the archeology of national parks with the Midwest Archeological Center (MWAC). This talk culminates our speaker series celebrating the 50th anniversary of MWAC, a unit of the National Park Service based in Lincoln, Nebraska. This event is free and open to the public. Visitors to the Denney Federal Building must have a valid photo ID and pass through a security screening area. Limited visitor parking is available on the ground floor of the Federal parking garage at the corner of N Street and Centennial Mall.
