On Thursday, November 8, John Speth, emeritus anthropology professor at the University of Michigan, will speak in the Whitney Auditorium (Room 1315, School of Education Building) at noon as part of the UMMAA Brown Bag Lecture Series.

The presentation, Archaeological Interpretations of Hunter-Gatherer Lifeways in the Past: Questioning Traditional Assumptions, revisits ideas that started out decades ago as innovative ways to view the archaeological record. Dr. Speth proposes that some of these ideas are in need of revising.

The Museum’s Brown Bag Lecture Series is free and open to the public.
