THIS IS A PAST EVENT.

Archaeology of the Built Environment in the Cherokee Heartland, a talk by Wake Alum, Dr. Benjamin Steere

Archaeologists have long understood that the buildings people leave behind, from simple dwellings to elaborate public structures, are a vital source of information about past ways of life. In the ancestral Cherokee heartland of western North Carolina, decades of academic and cultural resource management archaeology have produced detailed information about Cherokee houses and communities. Examining patterns of change and continuity in public architecture and domestic structures provides insight about deep Cherokee cultural traditions and the resilience of Cherokee communities.
