|Archaeology program slated at Grand Village|
The Grand Village of the Natchez Indians will present a program by Pamela Edwards Lieb. Chief Archaeologist for the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, on Thursday evening, September 11, 2008. at 6:30 p.m. in the museum auditorium.
The title of Lieb's talk is "Ceramics from the Hollywood Archaeological Site, Tunica County, Mississippi." Admission is free and seating is limited.
Lieb, a native of Memphis. Tenn., joined the staff of the Historic Preservation Division of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in September 2004 as an archaeologist and curator of the archaeological collections. In October 2005, she was promoted to Chief Archaeologist.
She earned a B. A. in anthropology with a minor in history from the University of Memphis in 2000 and a M. A. in anthropology from the University of Mississippi in 2003. Before coming to the Department of Archives and History, she worked as a collections manager for the Cobb Institute of Archaeology at Mississippi State University.
She has worked for the National Park Service on various projects such as the Shiloh Mounds in Tennessee and in the Cairo Museum in Vicksburg. She lives in Jackson with her husband. Brad, and their son Henry.
The Hollywood archaeological site (named for the nearby Hollywood community) contains four ceremonial mounds and a surrounding village area. Radiocarbon dating at the site indicates occupation between A.D. 1300 and 1500. Lieb's analysis of the pottery sequence at Hollywood has contributed to the information about when the site was constructed and used.
Archaeologists are intrigued by the possibility that the Hollywood mounds were still in use when the De Soto expedition reached this area in the spring of 1541; however, hard evidence of occupation at this late date remains elusive.
Light refreshments will be served. Call 601-446-6502 for more information.
