11th anniversary of CMVAS will be celebrated Oct. 15
The Central Mississippi Valley Archeological Society (CMVAS) will present a special lecture to celebrate the organization’s 11th anniversary on Tuesday, Oct. 15, ASU Museum, Room 182. The special lecture, “The Great Serpent and the Old Woman Who Never Dies,” will be presented by Dr. David Dye, assistant professor of earth sciences from the University of Memphis. The presentation will discuss two important Mississippian deities, the Great Serpent and the Old Woman Who Never Dies, along with the roles they played in the renewal of life. Late prehistoric eastern Arkansas ceramic art depicts these two supernatural beings in detail, suggesting that world renewal and soul recycling rituals were important aspects of Mississippian religious beliefs. The presentation is free, and the public is welcome. For details, call Dr. Julie Morrow, ASU’s Arkansas Archeological Survey station archeologist, ext. 2071, or see the NewsPage release.
