ULM Museum of Natural History guest speaker scheduled for June 20
The ULM Museum of Natural History will host guest speaker Diana Greenlee Tuesday, June 20 at 7 p.m. as part of its ongoing commitment to sharing scientific research and culture with the public.
Greenlee is a candidate for the Poverty Point Station Archaeologist position. Her presentation “How Science and Technology in Archaeology Shape What We Know About Prehistoric Diet” is brought in by the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism’s Division of Archaeology in Baton Rouge and is expected to last about 30 minutes.
Her speech centers on how science and technological innovations have produced archaeological knowledge about prehistoric diet in eastern North America and about potential future applications to the archaeological record of the lower Mississippi Valley.
The guest speaker received her Ph.D. from the University of Washington in 2002. She is currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Washington. Her research interests focus on diet and subsistence systems of prehistoric peoples in the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
