Archaeologists learn about ancient peoples through studying the tangible evidence they left behind. Remains of tools, technologies, houses, and foodstuffs tell us a great deal about the cultures of our predecessors, but it is only through their skeletons that we can gain a true sense of what it was like to live their lives.
“The Lives of the First People of the Northwest as Revealed by their Skeletal Remains”, presented by Jim Chatters, Applied Paleoscience, will discuss the few individuals who have come forward in time. From the earliest well-documented cultures of the Pacific Northwest, including those from Marmes, Buhl, and Kennewick, he will show how the evidence they provide compares with what is known about other first North Americans.
