The next Illinois State Museum Science Series lecture is this Wednesday night, Sept. 10.
Dr. Jodie O'Gorman has been researching a 700 year old site in Fulton County called Morton Village.
It's where two groups met, lived and apparently fought. While the site is a tranquil setting these days, evidence points to high rate of violent deaths. Understanding how a migrant group called Oneota and local Mississippians got along, and sometimes didn't, is the focus of the work.
