McAlester Archeological Society meeting set

McALESTER — Everyone is welcome to attend the McAlester Archaeological Society monthly meeting, from 7-9 p.m.  April 12 at Krebs City Hall.

Plans include showing a DVD from the History Channel, “The New World, Nightmare at Jamestown.”

Archaeologists who excavated this site have learned a lot about the nation’s early history that isn’t in the history books many learned from in school, according to member Connie Masters.

The first settlers were ill-equipped to survive the harsh winters, hot humid summers, and the natives they thought would be friendly and helpful.

Anyone interested in the beginnings of the nation should find this documentary interesting. For more information contact Masters at; 918-470-3781.
