Event Description:
The Ko-ko-ci Chapter of the Arkansas Archeological Society will hold its meeting Tuesday, November 13 at 7pm at the Arkansas Archeological Survey building. Guest speaker will be Breanne Wilbanks. She will present “Hands of Mercy: Methods of Healing Practice by Frontier Nuns.” This talk explores the varied possibilities of what constituted health during the 19th century via artifacts from the site of St. Anne’s Convent in Fort Smith. The artifacts from St. Anne’s provide much insight into the material remains of healthcare via patent medicines and faunal remains but only act as parts to a greater picture of what healing practice was during the time period. Ms. Wilbanks, a grad student at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, will detail how the Sisters of Mercy used every resource available in order to heal the blossoming town of Fort Smith.

This event will be held at the Arkansas Archeological Survey at 2475 N. Hatch Ave., Fayetteville, off of Garland Ave., across from the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science Center. Refreshments served. Free and open to the public.

Call 479-283-5720 for more information or directions.
