Did you know that the Cloquet River is one of the oldest rivers in the state of Minnesota. I didn’t know that there was a grant given to study it and while they were looking at it, they found some things.

 ”A River Runs through It: Archaeology along the Cloquet River in St. Louis County, Minnesota.” In 2012, a survey was conducted on the Cloquet River, focusing on the section in St. Louis County, Minnesota. The project was funded by a Minnesota Legacy Grant through the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund issued by the Minnesota Historical Society.

According to Mulholland, “the Cloquet River is probably the oldest river in this area.” Her lecture will reveal the archaeological discoveries unearthed during the survey. Are there dinosaurs, creatures long gone. Early things from settlers?

Susan C. Mulholland is the co-owner and president of Duluth Archaeology Center, L.L.C. She has a Ph.D. in Ancient Studies (Interdisciplinary Archaeology). For about fourteen years, she served as the Associate Director and Senior Scientist at the University of Minnesota’s Archaeometry Laboratory. She has taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota and the University of Minnesota – Duluth. In addition, she has spent several years working in the field as an archaeologist and contributed to several archaeology publications.

Susan C. Mulholland will speak about her book,  ”A River Runs through It: Archaeology along the Cloquet River in St. Louis County, Minnesota.” The event will be held in the Ruth Maney Room, on the first floor of the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot), at 506 West Michigan Street, Duluth, Minnesota. Coffee will be served.

There will be limited theater-style seating (no tables), but feel free to bring your own bag lunch. Seating is first-come, first-served (no reservations). Admittance to this event is free to the public.
