Poverty Point World Heritage Site
6859 Highway 577, Pioneer
Do you ever wonder about that stone projectile point that you found while wandering across a field or in your garden? Stone and fired clay artifacts are found throughout Louisiana, especially on ridges near creeks or rivers, where prehistoric people lived or camped. If you have an artifact or a collection of artifacts that you would like to know more about, then bring them to Poverty Point World Heritage Site on Saturday, January 25. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., site staff will be on hand to look at your items and help identify them; they may also be able to give an estimated age of the items.
