STANTON, Kentucky — Kentucky's oldest archaeology event is coming up this month in eastern Kentucky.

The free event, Living Archaeology Weekend, has taken place since 1989 at Red River Gorge. This year's event is Sept. 19 and 20 at Gladie Visitor Center.

The state says hundreds of preregistered school students will take part Sept. 19 in demonstrations on tanning animal hides, weaving baskets, making pottery, milling corn, throwing spears with an atlatl (AHT'-laht-uhl) and flinting knap. Those events are for school groups by reservation only. For more information, call the Gladie Center at (606) 663-8100.

On Sept. 20, the public is invited to attend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT. Admission is free.

Gov. Steve Beshear designated September as Kentucky Archaeology Month.
