Join the Archaeological Institute of America-Milwaukee Society for an online public lecture, “Traveling Prehistoric Seas: Boats, the Oceans, and Archaeological Evidence for PreColumbian Voyages” by Alice Kehoe on Sunday, February 6, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. CST.

In her talk, Kehoe draws from her 2016 book Traveling Prehistoric Seas to explain the history of seafaring boats and evidence for people crossing open ocean from Middle Paleolithic (colonizing outer Indonesia and Australia) through Polynesian explorations that reached the Americas.
Alice Beck Kehoe is a professor of anthropology emeritus at Marquette University. She is the author or editor of twenty books, including North American Indians: A Comprehensive Account, The Land of Prehistory: A Critical History of American Archaeology, and North America Before the European Invasions. Her forthcoming book, Girl Archaeologist (Nebraska, 2022), recounts Kehoe’s life, begun in an era very different from the twenty-first century in which she retired as an honored elder archaeologist.
