AIA (Archaeological Institute of America) Toledo Society Lecture Series

Friday, April 26 | 6:30pm | Little Theater

No Registration Required


Join us for an AIA (Archaeological Institute of America) Toledo Society Lecture Series: Life in Ice Age Europe: beyond Cavemen and Man the Hunter

Recent research has been rapidly upending assumptions about our Stone Age ancestors. Conventional wisdom has seen their lives as consisting of constant struggle, defined by strict, “natural” gender roles and simple technologies. Modern excavation and analytical techniques have expanded the picture, including through ancient DNA studies, evidence of perishable objects, signs of mutual care, and the discovery of unexpected sites. One such site is Peyre Blanque, an open-air site in the Central French Pyrénées that dates to about 17,000 years ago, where people chose not to live in a cave despite being in a region of abundant caves and rock shelters. This presentation will discuss ongoing work at Peyre Blanque in the context of the new directions in hunter-gatherer-forager archaeology that create a fuller, more complete picture of human pasts.
