Archaeologist to talk at Cal Poly May 18

SAN LUIS OBISPO - Archaeologist Mark Raab will present "The Peopling of North America -- Ice Age Mariners and Archaeology's New Frontier" from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, May 18, Business Building Rotunda (Room 213).
Archaeologists once believed the New World's original settlers were big-game hunters who migrated from Asia to North America during the last Ice Age.Maritime cultures, such as California's Chumash Indians, were thought to have been among the last to appear, as people gradually developed the skills necessary for seafaring and marine hunting and gathering.
In his presentation, Raab will discuss how recent research in California's Channel Islands has shown that seafaring peoples must be counted among North America's earliest settlers."Excavations on San Clemente Island show that between 8,000 to 10,000 years ago, islanders possessed seafaring capabilities and maritime economies as sophisticated as those of native coastal groups of the early historic era.After a century of neglect and misdirection, the study of coastal prehistory is emerging as one of archaeology's most important research frontiers," he said.

In a May 18 presentation that may be of interest to Southeastern archaeologists pondering the implications of the Topper site, archaeologist Mark Raab discussed how recent research in California's Channel Islands has shown that seafaring peoples must be counted among North America's earliest settlers.

Synthesizing more than 9,000 years of history, Raab, Cassidy, Yatsko, and Howard address some of the big issues in hunter-gatherer studies today: early seafaring, the timing of residential stability, long-term human-environmental interactions, sociopolitical complexity, and colonial encounters.
