The Archeology Laboratory, Augustana University will be hosting the 2016 Lithic Materials Workshop.  The workshop will be held on-campus at the Edith Mortenson Center, Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  It is scheduled for Friday, February 19th and Saturday, February 20th (specific times to follow).  The event represents the fourth in a series of biennial workshops intended to be an informal gathering of professionals and avocationals with an interest in all things lithic (or archeology in general).  It is free and open to all.

We hope to have a small number of papers and/or poster presentations focusing on lithics and related research, as well as cast and replica displays, a lithic materials exchange, and a flintknapping area with demonstrations.

We still need paper and poster presenters for the workshop!  If you, or anyone you know, may be interested in presenting, please notify Austin Buhta at: austin.buhta@augie.edu <mailto:austin.buhta@augie.edu>.  Please also let Austin know if you will need table space for displays or for the rock exchange.

Following the workshop, on Sunday the 21st, Augustana Professor KC Carlson will be presenting the Third Sunday Archeology Lecture entitled: /Folsom Adaptations to Bison Hunting: A Comparison of Northern and Southern Plains Arroyo Trap Kills/.  All are invited to this free presentation as well.

General questions may be addressed to Austin. Thanks.  Hope to see you
there!
