Discovery Day Gallery

Big Bone Lick State Historic Site hosted a “Discovery Day” to showcase a wide variety of historic artifacts and exhibits on Saturday, June 27, 2015.

The event included Ice Age bones and stones, pioneer life and Native American culture. Exhibits and demonstrations included Pleistocene bones and Indian artifacts, honeybee hive life, spinning bison fur into yarn, native plant uses, and live birds of prey.

Guests were able to have the hands-on experience of sitting at the potter’s wheel and receive instructions for making a pot. In addition, the park’s interpretive staff offered crafts and the opportunity to try your hand at using an atlatl in a prehistoric weapon demonstration.
