The Oklahoma Public Archaeology Network hosts Dr. Suzie Thomas, a visiting scholar from the University of Helsinki. Dr. Thomas will be sharing her fascinating work on World War II archaeology in Finland. Her presentation will discuss the methods that the “Lapland’s Dark Heritage” research team (from the Universities of Helsinki and Oulu) have used to uncover the legacies of the complex relationship between Finns and Germans in WWII, from archaeological excavation and survey to ethnographic interviews and examination of museum exhibits and touristic sites.

The presentation will be preceded by a reception with refreshments beginning at 6:00 PM. Enjoy this time to discuss with Dr. Thomas and other presentation attendees who are interested in the Second World War or any type of archaeology.
