The Archaeology of the Origins of Modern Humans

Sponsored by AIA-MN

AIA Society Event: Minneapolis/St. Paul

Thursday, December 1, 2011 - 6:00pm

Location:
John B. Davis Lecture Hall in the Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center at Macalester College
United States

Lecture by Gilbert Tostevin

Why anatomically modern humans survived the Pleistocene Epoch, whereas our evolutionary relatives, the Neanderthals and other archaic Homo species did not, is a fundamental question for anthropological archaeology.  The origins of modern humans as a research subject engages of the fields of genetics, biological anthropology, demographic modeling, geology, and Paleolithic archaeology.  I will present the archaeological conclusions concerning both the consensus view of our species’ origins as well as recent cutting edge research on the adaptations that allowed our proliferation at the end of the last Ice Age.  Regardless of which of these adaptations (long-range weaponry, diet breadth, social behavior, and others) were most critical, each potential explanation has a significant message for our species’ immediate present and future.

Students in Archaeology: Poster Presentation of Recent Fieldwork

Sponsored by AIA-MN

AIA Society Event: Minneapolis/St. Paul

Saturday, October 22, 2011 - 11:00am

Location:
the Weyerhaeuser Board Room, Weyerhaeuser Hall, at Macalester College
United States

The Minnesota Society of the AIA has proudly received one of the AIA Society Outreach Grants for this project to organize a poster session for students to present their experiences with archaeological fieldwork carried on during the summer. We are reaching out to our community by presenting the vibrant student involvement with archaeological fieldwork and projects nationally and internationally. We hope to inspire students and the general public and encourage life-long interest in preservation of archaeological heritage. The poster session should also bring together students and professionals from different institutions, and encourage membership in the AIA and its MN Society. We expect that students presenting posters of their work will introduce their classmates, families and friends to the AIA and to its global work.
