Where: Kathy Cashen Hall, Humanities Building on UWG campus.
Parking will be available in the Humanities/Campus Quad lot or Townsend Center lot.
The community and campus are invited to attend (there is no admission fee).

Archaeologist Dr. Ted Goebel, Associate Director for the Center for the Study of the First Americans at Texas A&M University, will visit the University of West Georgia campus to share discoveries from archaeological sites in Russia, Alaska, Nevada, and the American Southeast.

Goebel’s talk explores the questions of who the first Americans were and how they came to the New World during the Ice Age. Toward answering these questions, Goebel examines three lines of evidence: archaeological, physical, and genetic records.
