Please join the Rutherford County Archaeological Society for our last meeting of the year on Saturday, November 24, noon at the Heritage Center, 225 W. College St., downtown Murfreesboro. We have an excelllent guest speaker, archaeologist and MTSU alumna Clelie Cottle Peacock, who will be presenting “Traversing Transylvania- My Research and Experiences from ArchaeoTek’s 2018 Medieval Cemetery Funerary Field School.”
In June 2018, Ms. Cottle Peacock traveled to Romania to attend ArchaeoTek’s Medieval Cemetery Funerary Excavation Field School. While there, she excavated osteological remains, explored the cultural area of Transylvania, and performed and presented research on the cemetery they were excavating. You do not want to miss this special presentation as Ms. Cottle Peacock will share her experiences and research from the field.
