|Tibbee Creek Site topic at Grand Village|
The Grand Village of the Natchez Indians will present an illustrated talk by John O'Hear entitled "So Wrong for So Long: A Reappraisal of the Tibbee Creek Site" in the museum auditorium at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 11, 2010.
Admission is free and seating is limited.
Mississippi State University archaeologist John O'Hear has worked in the school's anthropology program and for the Cobb Institute of Archaeology for thirty years. He received his B.A. and M.A. degrees in anthropology from the University of Alabama and has done subsequent work at the University of Michigan and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Although he specializes in the archaeology of the Mississippi-Alabama region, he has also worked on archaeological sites in Mexico, Argentina, Cuba, Jordan, and Israel. He is past president of the Mississippi Archaeological Association and the Southeastern Archaeological Conference.
O'Hear's talk will focus on an archaeological site near Starkville, Mississippi, called the Tibbee Creek Site. As we will see, archaeologists sometimes disagree about the meaning behind the clues to the past discovered in excavations. For many years, O'Hear and other archaeologists classified the late prehistoric remains at the Tibbee Creek site as a house site; however, a new interpretation indicates that the site may have instead been a ceremonial location. O'Hear will explain what clues led him to change his mind about this important archaeological site.
Light refreshments will be served. Call 601-446-6502 for more information.
