"The Griffin Report " Tuesday, January 5th

SRAC's next edition of History’s Mysteries will be "The Griffin Report" by Deb Twigg. The presentation will be held on Tuesday, January 5, 2010 – 6:30pm – 7:30pm at SRAC, 345 Broad St, Waverly, NY.

In 1931, the Tioga Point Museum hired a young college student, James Griffin to research many local sites in the region. This report was never published and James Griffin later became one of the most well known archaeologists of his time. The result was a report that has been used in some professional archaeological reports and commentary without having it available for others to see what it actually said. Twigg will unveil the mystery and the myth that has surrounded this report since 1931.

Come and learn about this controversial report and how it has effected the understanding of our archaeology in our region.

Admission: adults $5, Students and SRAC members $4. Doors open at 6pm and admission to the exhibit hall filled with thousands of local Native American artifacts is included in the admission price.
