Dr. William Lipe, "Leaving Mesa Verde: The Great Pueblo Migrations of the 13th Century AD in the American Southwest"

One of the most enduring questions in Southwestern archaeology is why many thousands of Pueblo people left the Four Corners region in the late AD 1200s, moving away from an area where their ancestors had lived for many centuries. There is not a single simple answer to this question; but this presentation reviews recent research in the Mesa Verde and Rio Grande regions that sheds new light on the climatic and cultural factors that may have influenced the migrations, where the migrants eventually settled, and what social and cultural changes accompanied their relocation.

Dr. Andrew L. Goldman, "Rome vs. Carthage: Underwater Archaeology and the Battle of the Aegates Islands (241 BCE)"

On 10 March, 241 BCE, the final naval battle of the First Punic War was fought off western Sicily, where a large Roman fleet engaged an equally large Carthaginian fleet near the Aegates Islands. The ancient historian Polybius tells us how the Romans won a decisive victory and forced the Carthaginians to sue for peace shortly thereafter. Now, almost 2300 years later, the site of the battle has been found off Levanzo Island, and its landscape has been carefully surveyed. By the end of 2012, ten warship rams, a number of helmets, and wide scatter of transport amphoras have been located on the sea floor beneath the battle zone. For the first time ever, we can examine the fallout from an ancient naval battle. This lecture will discuss the various finds of this underwater project, focusing in particular upon the military equipment and the significance of those objects, among the earliest Roman armor ever found.
