Dr. Andrew M. Moore, Dean of Graduate Studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology, President of the Rochester Society of the AIA, and archaeologist, specializes in studies of the Neolithic period. He has excavated and examined finds from a number of sites in the Near and Middle East and Western Asia. For eight years, he has directed excavations in Croatia, finding evidence of some of the very earliest farming practices in that region, as they spread from the Middle East through the Merditerranean some 8,000 years ago. His assessment and analysis will form the basis of his lecture.
