Once again the Green River Archeological Society (G.R.A.S.) will host a Prehistoric Indian Artifacts show, which draws collectors and enthusiasts from across the area.

The show has been a tradition since the 1970s.

This event will take place at the Barren River Lake State Park on August 27 and August 28, 8 – 4 each day.

Display items are limited to Prehistoric artifacts from the continental US, Alaska, and Canada only.

“Related books and display cases will be allowed, however no flea market materials like guns, knives, beads, or reproductions of any kind are permitted,” said Doug Goodrum of G.R.A.S.

There will be approximately 85 booths with thousands of artifacts from the Kentucky and Tennessee region, and 1,000 or more in attendance if tradition is an indicator of this year’s event.

“This will be the first two-day event we’ve ever held,” Goodrum said.

This show is free and open to the public.

In order to have a table, you must be a member of the Central States Archeological Society. Non-members may be able to purchase a booth; a fee will apply. For more information call Goodrum at 270-791-0989.
