Sponsored by: Robert S. Peabody Institute of Archaeology
The inaugural Peabody Lecture in Archaeology and Education
Join Central Connecticut State University Professor of Anthropology Ken Feder for an entertaining and eye opening tour of sites that have inspired some of the strangest, and most dangerous, ideas about North American archaeology. From aliens, dragons, giants, and trans-Atlantic visitors, Feder explains why these amusing and seemingly harmless ideas about the American past undermine the real story of Native Americans.
