Anna Roosevelt – Museum of Natural and Cultural History Archaeology Lecture Series

 

| Open Player in New Window

On Oct. 19 2012, the museum’s lecture series concluded with Roosevelt’s talk on “New Light on the Peopling of South America.” Roosevelt, an anthropologist and great-granddaughter of President Theodore Roosevelt, is credited with rediscovering the Monte Alegre site along the Amazon River. The site, dating to more than 10,000 years ago, included cave paintings and tools. She will discuss the implications of new archaeological evidence and the latest analysis of previously known sites.

The Museum of Natural and Cultural History, 1680 E. 15th Ave. in Eugene, is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and youths 17 and under, and $8 for families (two adults and up to four youths). Museum members are admitted free. Guided tours are offered each Friday at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
