Ice Age expert to lecture at UWG

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."

Goebel is associate director of Texas A&M's Center for the Study of the First Americans. He recently co-edited From the Yenisei to the Yukon: Interpreting Lithic Assemblage Variability, a book about some of the first settlers in what is now America.

"Dr. Ted Goebel is known for his expertise in how people colonized the Americas at the end of the Ice Age -- when they entered North America, where they came from and how they adapted to a rapidly changing environment," Smallwood said.
