October 26: "Hensler Petroglyphs" - Dale Van Holten

Within two miles of Waterloo, WI, there is a unique archeological site containing prehistoric engravings, executed by American Indians over 10,000 years ago. The site is called the Hensler Petroglyph Site, named after the Hensler family who originally owned it. It is within a large working quarry.

The site was first investigated in 1986 and was reported in the Wisconsin Archeologist in 1987. In 2005, a continuing program of archeological excavations was initiated. The goals of these excavations were to find out who the people were who made these engravings, why they did it and when. Mr. Van Holten can help you learn and understand more about this ancient form of art.
