WOOSTER, Ohio — James Phillips, Curator of Anthropology at the Field Museum in Chicago, will present “The Archaeology of the Sinai Peninsula” on Tuesday, Nov. 3, at The College of Wooster. Phillips’ illustrated lecture, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. in Lean Lecture Room of Wishart Hall (303 E. University St.).
The Sinai Peninsula forms the only land link between Africa and Asia, and thus has been a major crossroads for the movement of people and animals between the continents. Research over a 40-year period has elucidated a number of prehistoric and early historic occupations of Sinai, and the nature of interactions between northwest Africa and southwest Asia. The talk will address issues of migration, assimilation, and integration into a changing landscape over a period of 50,000 years.
Prof. Phillips’ lecture is sponsored by the Archaeology Student Colloquium, the Program in Archaeology, the Cultural Events Committee, the Local Society of the Archaeological Institute of America, and the local chapter of Lambda Alpha National Honorary Society in Anthropology. There will be an open reception with beverages and snacks after the presentation in the foyer outside the lecture room. Additional information is available by phone (330-263-2474) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
