THATCHER, AZ—Who were the first Americans? Were there actually Pre-Clovis peoples? If so, who could they have been? What do anthropologists think about site dates as old as 40,000 years and older? If the Americas were settled that long ago, how did the immigrants get here? What do we know about Paleo-Indian and Archaic cultures? Certainly, there are more questions than answers about so-called Pre-Clovis occupations of North American, particularly the Southwest.

Join us October 20, at 6:30 p.m., at the Discovery Park Campus as we explore some of these questions in our continuing slide lecture series “Discover Anthropology at the Discovery Park Campus.” These questions about the First Americans will be explored in a program entitled Who Were the First Americans?

The entire community is invited to attend the continuation of this comprehensive culture lecture series. For more information about the lecture series or about Discovery Park Campus, call 428-6260.
