New lecture on “Archaeological Field Schools in the Southwest” in Irvine

New lecture on “Archaeological Field Schools in the Southwest” in Irvine
archaeology

The American Southwest has a rich archaeological heritage.

The Pacific Coast Archaeological Society hosts a lecture every month, on the second Thursday, beginning at 730pm.  This week, October 13, a local professor and archaeological anthropologist from California State University at Fullerton will deliver the lecture entitled Archaeological Field Schools in California and the American Southwest: Historical Perspectives and Personal Reflections.

The majority of university field schools are held in the Southwest, since the passage of the Antiquities Act over 100 years ago.  For instance, even schools as far away as Florida State hold field schools in such places as New Mexico. Dr. Steven James will discuss the historical background of the development of field schools over time, as well as the findings from the last several years of field school which he personally directed in Northern Arizona for CSU Fullerton.
Dr. James has studied and worked in the Southwest for over 35 years, has written more than 60 articles, and more than 200 technical reports, as well as contributed to several books on archaeology.
The lecture, Archaeological Field Schools in California and the American Southwest: Historical Perspectives and Personal Reflections will be held October 13th at 730pm at the Pacific Coast Archaeological Society, located in the Irvine Ranch Water District.  The event is FREE and open to the public.
