The Demise of the Neandertals? Perspectives from the Eastside

Sponsored by Spokane Society

AIA Society Event: Spokane

Recent research on the Neandertals has considered whether this archaic group intermixed with modern humans during the late Pleistocene or suffered extinction, perhaps because of changing climate and/or the migration of modern humans. Typically, western Europe is identified as the location of this event. Dr. Glantz will discuss how evidence from southern Siberia and Central Asia can be applied to the question of what happened to the Neandertals.

National Archaeology Day

Sponsored by Spokane Society

AIA Society Event: Spokane

Friday, October 19, 2012 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Location:
Hargreaves Hall room 219, Eastern Washington University
Cheney, WA 99004
United States

Professor Georgia Bazemore, current president of the Spokane Society, will present the results of her 16 years of archaeological work on the island of Cyprus. Her work concentrates on the religious landscape surrounding the temple of Aphrodite in ancient Paphos, which Homer identifies as the home of this goddess. Dr. Bazemore has located the temple complex of the consort of Aphrodite, known in Greek as Adonis. Cult activities in the temple of Adonis include prophecy and a belief in the resurrection of the dead. Students who have participated in the excavations will also discuss their experiences in practical archaeology. Dr. Bazemore will have a small assemblage of artefacts from Cyprus to share with the audience. She will also discuss the difficulties of archaeological excavation within the context of modern development of land for buildings.

Before Lake Powell: Memories of Glen Canyon Archaeology

Sponsored by Spokane Society

AIA Society Event: Spokane

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Location:
Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture
2316 W. 1st Avenue
Spokane, WA 99204
United States

Dr. William Lipe, Professor Emeritus, Washington State University

When the Glen Canyon Dam was completed in 1963, Lake Powell started to fill, eventually extending over 180 miles up the Colorado River from the dam site. From 1958 through 1961, archaeologist Bill Lipe led crews studying some of the archaeological sites destined to be destroyed by the lake and its visitors. In this talk, he will draw on his recollections, as wel as on 50-year-old photos and films, to discuss how the archaeological work was done and what was learned before the sites were permanently affected by the development of Lake Powell. He will also touch briefly on the role that the controversy over damming Glen Canyon played in the development of the environmental and historic preservation movements of the 1960s and 1970s.

Ancient Tel Dor in Israel

Sponsored by Spokane Society

AIA Society Event: Spokane

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Location:
Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture
2316 W. 1st Avenue
Spokane, WA 99204
United States

Dr. Sarah Stroup, Associate Professor, University of Washington

Ancient Dor, a bustling and multi-cultural port town located on the northern coast of Israel, was inhabited for well over 1000 years, from the days of King Solomon to the reign of the Roman Emperor Alexander Severus. The first part of the talk provides a survey of Dor from the 6th century BCE to the 2nd century CE, based on excavations in the past eleven years. The second part of the talk addresses three aspects of the site that inform our understanding of interaction between the inhabitants of the city and the western Greeks with whom they came into contact: a large murex dye complex, a key source of luxury goods; a large fragment of fine mosaic depicting a Hellenistic theatrical mask; and a small carefully-crafted carnelian intaglio depicting Alexander the Great, who traveled through Dor in 332 BCE.
