Dr. Kandace Hollenbach will present her talk, "Ancient Foodways of the Tennessee Valley: A View of the Deep Past from Archaeological Plant Remains” at the Museum at 2 pm on December 8th.

Dr. Hollenbach is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, and also serves as associate curator of paleoethnobotany at the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture. Dr. Hollenbach’s research focuses on early and historic foodways of peoples of the eastern United States and she is the author of the book, Foraging in the Tennessee Valley, 12,500 to 8,000 Years Ago (2009, U. of Alabama), which is available in the Museum’s gift shop. Her talk will focus on the changes from foraging to farming between about 12,000 and 3,000 years ago from sites around northern Alabama and eastern Tennessee.

This event is the fifth in a series of presentations based around archaeological study and stewardship in the Shoals region.
