The Secret Lives of Paleoindians: Ice Age Social and Ritual Systems in the Western Great Lakes

What do we really know about Wisconsin's earliest residents? The Ice Age peoples of Wisconsin have been stereotyped as simple, nomadic elephant hunters. But hidden within the archaeological record is subtle evidence of complex social lives. Come hear Dr. Tom Loebel, an archaeologist at Saint Xavier University, present the results of the most recent research into Paleoindian trade and ritual. You'll never think of Wisconsin's first peoples the same way again. This lecture is presented by the Charles E. Brown Chapter of the Wisconsin Archaeological Society.
