Lecture Series Winter 2014
- What: Dr Guy Prouty : Culture Change As Revealed By Archaeology: Late Pleistocene Migrations Into North America
- Abstract:One of the primary research goals in New World prehistory over the years has focused on when and how Late Pleistocene (or late ice age) peoples first entered the North American continent. Was it inland through interior Alaska, or along the Pacific Northwest coast? Of course, there has been debate over the timing and routes of these entrances and I would like to explore these arguments with a discussion of some of the most recent research of the “Kelp Highway” along the coast, of the Channel Islands in coastal California, and remarkably, of one of the oldest archaeological sites in North America, Paisley Five Mile Caves in south-central Oregon in the Northern Great Basin. Video interviews will also be presented.
