The Three Rivers Archaeological Society welcomes Dan Bartlett, Logan Museum Curator of Exhibits and Education, to its monthly meeting for a presentation titled "Ancient Whispers: Objects and Stories from the American Southwest."
Ancient people whisper their stories to us through traces of the lives they left behind. Archaeologists collect and record these whispers in the forms of objects, human remains, and careful observations of the built environment.
Excavations by Beloit College students at Starkweather Ruin, a Mogollon culture site, near Reserve, New Mexico, in the 1930s illustrate how these traces are collected, and taken together, what they can reveal about ancient lives.
A new exhibit on "Ancient Whispers," curated by Dan Bartlett will be open after the talk.
This event is free and open to the campus and community.
