Archaeologist to speak at St. Helens library

The St. Helens Public Library will host a lecture with archaeologist Don Hann on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m. in the library auditorium, 375 S 18th St.

Hann will give a presentation titled, “Re-imagining Historic Chinese Mining Landscapes,” a discussion that will explore the techniques Chinese miners used to recover gold from locations where other miners had left decades before. During his research Hann studied mining sites in northeast and southwest Oregon, and in the John Day Valley.

The talk is hosted in part with the Oregon Historical Society’s 2016 Chinese Oregon Speaker Series.
