First Thursday: “Early Holocene Archaeology of Oregon’s Harney Basin”

Early Holocene Archaeology of Oregon’s Harney Basin

Presented by Danny Gilmour & Erik Hardman

Willamette Cultural Resources Associates, Ltd

Thursday, October 6

4:00pm, Smith Memorial Ctr 236

Free & Open to Public

Oregon’s Harney Basin lies at the margin of the northern Great Basin and the southern Columbia Plateau. Paleoindian sites are known in the area, but typically consist of surface scatters of stemmed and occasionally fluted points found scattered across both lowland and upland settings. Few sites have undergone  extensive excavation. In this paper, we present results of recent archaeological investigations and integrate this information with existing excavation data to increase our understanding of early human use of the area. The data provide insights to the complexity of adaptations practiced by foraging groups as they responded to the shifting environmental conditions of the early Holocene and the shrinking of pluvial Lake Malheur.

ARCE Lecture – Golden Age Archaeology in the Valley of the Kings, Monday Oct. 24

Hi all – Our ARCE lecture program kicks off Monday Oct. 24th at 7:30 with Sarah Ketchley, PhD, University of Washington, who will be speaking on the “Golden Age Archaeology in the Valley of the Kings: The Diaries of Mrs. Emma B. Andrews.” This should be a fascinating glimpse into old school Egyptology from the turn of the 20th Century, from a woman’s perspective.

Seating is limited, this venue is smaller than our lecture rooms have been in the past, so get there early, if you plan to attend!
