Archaeology Southwest and Casa Vicente invite all to the fourth season of Archaeology Café, a casual, happy hour-style discussion forum dedicated to promoting community engagement with cultural and scientific research.
News that archaeologists in Mexico had found three Clovis points in association with Gomphothere remains was greeted with great enthusiasm. On Tuesday, May 1, 2012, Natalia Martínez Tagüeña and Vance Holliday will share the latest news about this exciting find and the most recent field season at the site of El Fin del Mundo.
Come settle in with a drink and a plate of delicious tapas at downtown Tucson’s own Casa Vicente. We meet the first Tuesday of each month from September through May at 6:00 p.m.; presentations begin at 6:15 p.m. Seating is open on a first-come, first-served basis—be ready to make new acquaintances! Our forum opens with a brief, informal presentation on a timely or even controversial topic, followed by a question and answer period and a short break. Our moderator then commences spirited but focused discussion.
More information on the international science café movement that inspired us to host Archaeology Café is available at www.sciencecafes.org.
