The December CFAS meeting will feature the annual holiday potluck (bring a dish or treat!) and the presentation “Traveling Between Worlds: An Archaeological Exploration of Complex Societies Research Based around Household Economies and Lithic Studies” by Lucas Martindale Johnson, a current PhD student in Anthropology at the University of Florida. Lucas will present data in the form of case studies from a small site in northern Ethiopia, Africa and another from a large Maya site in Belize, Central America. Both of these sites show evidence for intensive lithic reduction technology and this demonstrates that lithic reduction was an essential part of everyday life. Woven within the presentation will be stories from the field, methods and techniques of archaeological research, logistical challenges, and future research goals.
This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information contact Kevin Gidusko at email@example.com or (321) 948-3994. The potluck will begin around 6:30pm with the speaker starting around 7pm.
