Green, director, Arkansas Archeological Survey
Dec. 4, 2007 --
The Central Mississippi
Valley Archeological Society will present a lecture by Dr. Tom Green,
director, Arkansas Archaeological Survey, "Paleoindian or Paleoamerican?" on Thursday, Dec. 6,
at 7 p.m., ASU Museum, Room 182.
In the past decade, many biological
anthropologists have been calling the few late Pleistocene/early
Holocene skeletons in the Americas Paleoamericans instead of
Paleoindians, implying that skeletons such as Kennewick Man and Buhl
Woman may or may not be the biological ancestors of modern Native
Americans. The lecture will explore the use of craniofacial
morphology as a measure of biological affinity, as well as other
Admission is free and open to the public.
New anthropology books will be raffled off to fund Archeological Lab
research, and opportunities for field work near Jonesboro's RidgePointe subdivision will be announced. For details, e-mail
Dr. Julie Morrow.
