Central Mississippi Valley Archeological Society presents Dr. Jeffrey Mitchem

Nov. 25., 2008 -- The Central Mississippi Valley Archeological Society (CMVAS) will present a lecture, "Painting the Past," by Dr. Jeffrey Mitchem, station archeologist at Parkin Archeological State Park, on Wednesday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. The lecture, which takes place in the ASU Museum, Room 182, is free and open to the public.

Archaeologist Dr. Jeff Mitchem will discuss a series of paintings that Arkansas State Parks commissioned for Parkin Archeological State Park. The paintings are by Florida artist Ted Morris, who specializes in depictions of Native Americans. He strives to be as accurate as possible in showing their costumes, tools, and activities. The Parkin paintings were designed to show how the Parkin site would have looked about 500 years ago. Information on Arkansas archeology will be available. This lecture, like others this year, celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Central Mississippi Valley Archeological Society.
