The Center for Desert Archaeology 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.
On Tuesday, December 6, 2011, ground stone tool expert Jenny Adams will share some of the singular insights into the past that her pioneering analytical methods have made possible.
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.
