The fourth annual Artifact Road Show will be held on April 18 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Bureau of Land Management’s Billings Curation Center.

The public is invited to bring in artifacts they have to be analyzed by a panel of archaeological experts in order to discover the potential purpose, time period and story behind the object. Professionals will also take time to discuss the history of the area.

“The curation center is an excellent local resource for preserving historic and prehistoric artifacts, and this event is an opportunity for us to share our knowledge and passion with folks in the area,” said David Wade, the BLM’s curator.

The Artifact Road Show is being held at the BLM State Office, 5001 Southgate Dr. Visitors need a photo ID to gain access to the building.

For more information, contact Wade at 896-5213.
