John O’Shea, curator of Great Lakes Archaeology at the UMMAA, will speak at the National Museum of the Great Lakes in Toledo, Ohio, on April 28 as part of the museum’s annual underwater archaeology workshop and shipwreck research training.
O’Shea will talk about his work in Lake Huron, where he and his team found the remains of caribou hunting sites about 9,000 years old. This work is the basis for the 2015 book he co-edited with Elizabeth Sonnenburg and Ashley K. Lemke: Caribou Hunting in the Upper Great Lakes: Archaeological, Ethnographic, and Paleoenvironmental Perspectives.
Registration for the three-day workshop (including one day of diving practice in May) is $170.
