Leas Forum: The Prehistoric Archaeology of Medford, New Jersey
April 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Open to the public | No fee | No registration
Consider the archaeological prehistory of New Jersey with a focus on the Medford area. For over 10,000 years native peoples have lived in New Jersey and left behind objects that archaeologists are left to interpret. Focusing on archaeological sites in and around the Medford area, we will learn about what kinds of evidence archaeologists look for and how they interpret the past.
Dr. Gregory D. Lattanzi, Curator for the Bureau of Archaeology & Ethnology and New Jersey State Archaeologist at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton, New Jersey will speak on this topic. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Anthropology from the State University of New York at Binghamton; his Master’s degree in Anthropology from the City University of New York, Hunter College; and in 2013, received his PhD from Temple University.
