If you would like to see and hear about the most recent historic artifacts found in Missouri, you'll want to attend the Missouri Archaeological Society's annual meeting. For the first time in over five years, the meeting will be held in Springfield. KSMU's Greg Leuthen has a preview.

The Missouri Archaeological Society recently moved its headquarters from Columbia to Springfield.

Lisa Haney, the society's program manager, says the annual meeting will now be held locally once every three years. Haney explains the upcoming events at this year's meeting.

The three day event begins on Friday April 4rd and includes a banquet, book sales, and silent auctions, as well as a field trip to Wilson's Creek National Battlefield. The meeting will be held at the Clarion Hotel on South Glenstone Avenue. The meeting is open to the public, but registration either in advance or at the door is required.
