History Center Offers Plenty of Mid-October Events

The Northeast Georgia History Center has several interesting activities and events planned over the next two weeks.

One of just four full-size replicas of the famous Bayeux Tapestry — an 11th century piece depicting the Battle of Hastings — will be displayed Saturday, Oct. 10 and Oct. 13-17. Regular admission rates apply for the exhibit.

Admission is free for the “1066: The Year of Three Kings” family day event, scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 11. Docents will provide hand-on activities in the Education Center, while living history interpreters will showcase medieval armor and demonstrate what daily life was like in England circa 1066.

On Tuesday, Oct. 13, the center hosts a forum on the Etowah Indian Mounds at 7 p.m. Attendees will learn about the historical significance of the Bartow County landmark, as well as how the site is preserved today. Admission for the event is $3, while members get in for free.
