Public Lectures

Within the boundaries that define the state of Arkansas is a region filled with a long history of occupations, first by Native peoples and later by settlers in the early 19th century. The region is a wealth of historical and archaeological resources that document several thousand years of people utilizing, living, and thriving on the land now known as Arkansas. These people left traces of their daily lives, various uses of the landscape, a long history of exchange and trade with neighboring peoples and cultures, and tangible examples of symbolic connectedness to the region. The following Public Lectures explore the rich history and prehistory of Arkansas.
