Meridian, Miss. Many enthusiasts came out to a unique show in Meridian on Saturday.

That's the Indian Artifacts Show at the Frank Cochran Center in Meridian, which is sponsored by the Magnolia State Archaeological Society. Artifacts ranging from pottery to arrow heads were among the many things on display. The president of the society believes that through these discoveries, we can understand Indian history.

"If we don't preserve and study this stuff, it will be lost to future generations," Bill Breidinger says. "A lot of our stuff is found or surface finds and in creeks and if we don't preserve this, this Indian history will be lost forever and nobody will get to appreciate it."

Eight states from across the south took part in the show. Roughly 1,000 artifacts were on display for the public to view.
