Associate Professor Brian Wygal, Ph.D., and part-time faculty member Kathryn E. Krasinski, Ph.D., from Adelphi’s Department of Anthropology, will present their findings from last summer’s archaeological excavations in Alaska, including the recovery of a 14,000 year old mammoth tusk.
The Archaeological Field Methods in Alaska course, taught by the professors in the Summer 2016 semester, took eighteen students representing sixteen universities to remote corners of Alaska to locate and excavate sites related to the First Americans. At the Holzman site, the team uncovered evidence of camp fires, meals and tool-making activities, including tools made from mammoth ivory.
