First Thursday Lecture: Human Settlement of the Puget Sound Lowland at the Late Pleistocene-Holocene Transition as seen from the Bear Creek Site (45KI839)

The PSU Anthropology Department and the Anthropology Student Association invite you to join us on June 4th, for the last Archaeology First Thursday presentation of the 2014-2015 academic year.

Robert Kopperl (SWCA),  Amanda Taylor (SWCA), and  Kenneth Ames (PSU)  will present:

Human Settlement of the Puget Sound Lowland at the Late Pleistocene-Holocene Transition as seen from the Bear Creek Site (45KI839)

The Bear Creek site in suburban Seattle is the first archaeologically excavated site dating to the Late Pleistocene-Holocene (LPH) transition in Western Washington that has yielded lithic artifacts.  The information it provides regarding very early settlement, technology, and land use in the Puget Lowlands is therefore singular at this time.  Researchers will present the results of the 2013 large-scale data recovery excavation and subsequent analyses.

The presentation will take place at 4 pm  in Smith Memorial Student Union in Room 236.
We look forward to seeing you all here.
