"ColoradoTown.com KEYWORD Loveland Archaeological Society"
The Loveland Archaeological Society is a non-profit organization based in Loveland, Colorado promoting the study of archaeology pertaining to the Native American cultures in the American West. The individual and collective knowledge of its members is shared within the membership as well as with outreach programs throughout the Community including schools, museums, and libraries.
The Loveland Stone Age Fair, sponsored by the Loveland Archaeological Society, is one of the premier cultural events of its kind anywhere and has been a mainstay of the Loveland community for over 60 years. Held annually the last weekend in September and free to the public, this event features lectures by world renowned archaeologists as well as jaw-dropping non-commercial displays of artifacts from collectors throughout the country. This year’s event, featuring lectures by Dr. George Frison, Dr. Dennis Stanford, and Dr. Peggy Jodry, will be held September 25th and 26th at the Pulliam Community Building, 545 Cleveland Avenue in Loveland.
In addition, the Loveland Archaeological Society sponsors the Harry M. Walts Scholarship Fund to promote the continued study of archaeology at the University Post Graduate level.
Membership in The Loveland Archaeological Society comprises people of all ages, from all walks of life, and from all parts of Colorado, Wyoming, and elsewhere. Although their knowledge base may vary, they all share a common thread-that of the love for archaeology and the friendship of the organization’s members.
Meetings are held at 7:00 PM the first Tuesday of each month at the Pulliam Community Building, 545 Cleveland Avenue in Loveland. Meetings cover a variety of topics and include a program and refreshments. In addition, several field trips are conducted each year.
