The University of Wyoming Department of Anthropology is welcoming the curator of North American archaeology at the American Museum of Natural History to present the 16th annual Mulloy lecture. The public is invited to hear David Hurst Thomas will speak on “Alpine Archaeology in the American West: Indians in Unexpected Places” with a reception to follow.

The lecture will begin at 4:10 p.m. Monday, April 23, in Room 302 of the Classroom Building with the reception taking place in the Anthropology building. The entire event is free to attend. The annual lecture is named after UW’s first anthropologist, William Mulloy.

Thomas has directed more than 100 archaeological excavations and is the author of 30 books, 90 edited volumes and more than 100 scientific papers. He also is a founding trustee of the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. and a member of the National Academy of Sciences.

His talk will focus on his work in the high altitudes of Nevada, comparing it to similar research in California and Wyoming. Thomas will consider the effects that population density and climate change might have on explaining why people would choose to live in excess of 10,000 feet.
