Tank Bairdcopper artifact

At 2:00 pm on Sunday, December 9, the Northcentral Chapter #8 of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology will present Tom “Tank” Baird speaking on a rare copper artifact. Baird has theorized how the oxidized, irregular chunk of metal, termed a ‘celt’ or an ax, ended up a thousand miles away and thousands of years later from its origins as a copper nugget outcrop from upper Michigan to the banks of Muncy Creek.

The lecture will take place in the Community Room of the Taber Museum and is free and open to the public.

Visitors to the Museum will have the opportunity to view the Museum’s holiday exhibit, titled Skates, Sleds, Sleighs, and Stockings: The Taber Holiday Exhibit and to shop at the Taber Museum's Holiday Gift Shop featuring Christmas ornaments produced by some of the area’s most talented artists, including glass snowmen, pinecones, stained glass, Pysanky eggs, pine needles, sleds, and Santa Clauses. The featured artist Jackie Thomas will be offering intricately-woven loblolly (“Jack”) pine needle medallions.
