MAS Annual Meeting and Lecture

The Annual Meeting of the Minnesota Archaeological Society will be held Friday, April 20, 2012 at Sorin Hall on the campus of Hamline University.  Dr. Michael Michlovic, Professor of Anthropology at Minnesota State University – Moorhead will present a lecture titled “A Survey Archaeologist’s Perspective on Southwestern Minnesota Prehistory.”  The presentation will focus on the 2010 Swift County survey, while at the same time addressing some ideas about culture change, diffusion, and the beginnings of more settled life-ways in the later portion of the prehistoric period.  Some attention will also be devoted to the potential significance and drawbacks of archeological survey in an area such as the Minnesota prairies. 

Dr. Michlovic’s lectures are always entertaining and informative.  The cost is $20 per person which includes a buffet dinner and the event is open to everyone, member or not.  For additional information check out this link.
