Early Human Life on the Southeastern Coastal Plain


Watch the recorded lecture

In our featured Archaeology Month evening lecture, Dr. Moore will examine the changing paleo-environments of the Southeastern Coastal Plain and the ways in which humans adapted to their shifting world many millennia ago. His recent publications include articles on identifying ancient animal blood residues from stone tools in South Carolina and Georgia, and the possible impact of a comet fragment at the end of the Paleoindian Clovis period. Dr. Moore has also initiated the White Pond Human Paleoecology Project examining evidence from geologic cores and archaeological excavations to link the early prehistoric human record with periods of climate change recorded in the lake sediments over the last 13,000 years.
