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.

The Demise of the Neandertals? Perspectives from the Eastside

Recent research on the Neandertals has considered whether this archaic group intermixed with modern humans during the late Pleistocene or suffered extinction, perhaps because of changing climate and/or the migration of modern humans. Typically, western Europe is identified as the location of this event. Dr. Glantz will discuss how evidence from southern Siberia and Central Asia can be applied to the question of what happened to the Neandertals.

Professor Georgia Bazemore, current president of the Spokane Society, will present the results of her 16 years of archaeological work on the island of Cyprus. Her work concentrates on the religious landscape surrounding the temple of Aphrodite in ancient Paphos, which Homer identifies as the home of this goddess. Dr. Bazemore has located the temple complex of the consort of Aphrodite, known in Greek as Adonis. Cult activities in the temple of Adonis include prophecy and a belief in the resurrection of the dead. Students who have participated in the excavations will also discuss their experiences in practical archaeology. Dr. Bazemore will have a small assemblage of artefacts from Cyprus to share with the audience. She will also discuss the difficulties of archaeological excavation within the context of modern development of land for buildings.
