The First History Pub of the Season: 
"Old Poop and the Peopling of the Americas"

Dr. Dennis Jenkins is a senior research archaeologist for the UO's Museum of Natural and Cultural History. His research has focused on the first colonization of the Americas and it is his Paisley Caves Archaeological Research Project in Central Oregon which recovered the oldest indicator of human occupation in North America, 14,000 year old poop (coprolites)! He will speak on this discovery and its implications for the current theories about the peopling of the Americas at the W.O.W. Hall on Monday evening, September 24.

Doors open at 6:00; program at 7:00. Food provided by Vinnie's Smokin' BBQ; drinks by the W.O.W. Hall.
