AIA Talks: "Korea & Silk Road" 2-11-2010
We begin our spring series of archaeology events with two fascinating lectures on East Asia. In her research Dr. Sarah Nelson of the University of Denver investigates archaeo-astronomy, origins of agriculture, bronze technology, and gender issues. She is the editor or author of numerous books including Shamanism and the Origin of States, Ancient Queens, In Pursuit of Gender, Ancestors for the Pigs, The Archaeology of Northeast China, Spirit Bird Journey, Korean Social Archaeology, and others.
A big thank you to the Humanities Center and the Global Studies program for their sponsorship of this event.
