CARROLLTON, Ga. -- An anthropology professor at Texas A&M University will lecture on the Ice Age at the University of West Georgia this week.
Ted Goebel's talk, "Ice Age Peopling of the Americas: Do Stones, Bones, and Genes Tell the Same Story?" will be held Thursday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. in the humanities building. It is free and open to the public.
"The Department of Anthropology is proud to bring world-renowned scholars such as Dr. Ted Goebel to UWG," Ashley Smallwood, director of UWG's Antonio J. Waring Jr. Archaeological Laboratory, said in a statement. "It's an opportunity to bring the community and campus together to explore important topics in anthropology."
