Since 2010, the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) has conducted archaeological research in southeastern Oregon in an effort to understand early Native American lifeways. Join archaeologist Geoffrey Smith, Executive Director of the Great Basin Paleoindian Research Unit at UNR, for an overview of what has been revealed about Paleoindian settlement systems, subsistence strategies, and land-use in one of the most remote parts of Oregon.

This event is part of the museum’s annual Fall Archaeology Talks series. This year’s theme is New Directions in the Archaeology of Western America, featuring three lectures by experts in the field. Free admission.
