A new archaeological project is underway at the Angel Mounds State Historic Site in Evansville, Indiana.

Excavation crews were on the grounds Tuesday working at the site.

Officials say the construction won't affect visiting hours, which are from Wednesday through Sunday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

No details on the project have been released at this time.

Begining in 1939, under the direction of Glenn A. Black, a crew of 277 workers began excavating the Angel Mounds State Historic Site, recovering over 2.5 million artifacts.

While it may be breezy today, the sunshine isn't going to let us down. Most of the cloud cover will exit this morning. Dry and clear skies will be on tap this afternoon. Despite the strong northeasterly flow, highs shouldn't have any problems reaching the mid to upper 60s. We'll reach 66° in the River City.
