Yeoman’s in the Fork, Rare Book and Document Gallery in historic Leiper’s Fork, located at 4216 Old Hillsboro Road, Franklin, TN will be hosting a lecture and book signing in celebration of Native American Heritage Month, with author Edward P. McCullough, on Saturday, November 5, 2011 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
Edward’s lecture will focus on the most interesting (and probably little known) Native American sites in Williamson County from the various archaeological periods.
Edward’s new book “ The Native Americans in Williamson County, Tennessee Through the Date of the Last Permanent Village Settle, Circa 1450” is a fascinating review based on the archaeological record of the people who lived in Williamson County, Tennessee in prehistoric times. The first of the sites discussed has been dated to more than 10,000 BC. The last village site has been dated to about 1450 AD, a mere 42 years before Columbus “discovered” America.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information on the event, please contact Yeoman’s in the Fork by phone at 615-983-6460, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit them online at www.yeomansinthefork.com
