‘Fun with Radiocarbon Dates’ archaeology talk Nov. 27
Special Guest speak Bob Kelly
November 16, 2018
The Upper Green River Basin Chapter of the Wyoming Archeology Society will be having a meeting on Tuesday, November 27th, at 6:30 pm at the Museum of the Mountain Man in Pinedale. (Note the change of date to the 4th Tuesday instead of normal 3rd Tuesday to avoid Thanksgiving week.) There will be a short business meeting followed by a presentation by Bob Kelly. Everyone is welcome.
The topic of the presentation will be "Fun with Radiocarbon Dates." For the past several years Bob and his associates have been building a radiocarbon database from the lower 48 states. He’ll update the audience on the progress and talk about some of the things they have learned about Wyoming, North America, and even global prehistory from our database of thousands of radiocarbon dates.
Bob has been doing archaeology for the past 45 years in the western US — the last 20 in Wyoming. He is a past president of the Society for American Archaeology, and just completed a term as editor of the Society’s flagship journal, American Antiquity. He just completed excavation of a rockshelter near Medicine Lodge, on Paint Rock Creek, and have worked on the Pine Spring site in SW Wyoming, and surveyed ice patches for archaeology in the Winds, Absarokas, and Glacier National Park in Montana. With others, he is working on a mammoth kill site near Douglas. He is the co-author of two textbooks, Archaeology, and Archaeology: Down to Earth, and the author of The Lifeways of Hunter-Gatherers, and the popular book, The Fifth Beginning: What Six Million Years of Human History Can Tell Us about the Future.
