Lecture: Vertebrate Fossils & Cultural Modification

Time: 7:00 pm til 8:00 pm

Location: Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center, 1800 Weedon Dr NE, St Pete

Description: Archaeology Lecture Series - Vertebrate Fossils & Cultural Modification by Robert Sinibaldi, Ph.D.

The cultural modification of bones, antlers, and teeth by Paleoindians and those Native Americans that followed could constitute a book unto itself. Join the The Alliance for Weedon Island Archaeological Research and Education in cunjuction with the Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society for a presentation from Dr. Robert Sinibldi on the subjects of his latest book What Your Fossils Can Tell You: Vertebrate Morphology, Pathology, and Cultural Modification. As a rule of thumb many use the 10,000 year mark as a limit for what is fossilized and what is considered sub-fossil. Therefore in North America there is a short geological window where culturally modified items of bone, antler, and teeth could also be fossilized. Many of the items that will be presented might be considered sub-fossil – however, they could/should still represent culturally what could have existed during the Paleoindian time period.
