At 2pm in the DeNault Auditorium in Grimm Hall at Concordia University, Peter Mills, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Hawai’i, at Hilo, will discuss the controversy over the proposed construction of the large astronomical telescopes on Mauna Kea, a mountain that contains the largest known prehistoric stone tool quarry in the Pacific Basin. His lecture also describes how archaeologists have employed analytic methods to study this quarry to better understand Native Hawaiians’ transport of stone tools throughout the Hawaiian island chain.
