"Prehistoric Cultures of Pennsylvania in Practice”
Please join us on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 7:00 P.M. for “Prehistoric Cultures of Pennsylvania in Practice,” presented by Jim Stutzman. This program will be held in the auditorium of Valentine Hall on the Lutheran Theological Seminary’s campus.
Jim Stutzman is a native of Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania and has been studying the cultural practices and techniques of prehistoric Pennsylvania through archaeological discoveries and scholarship for nearly fifty years.
As a young man his interest grew out of collecting Indian artifacts on the local farms where he grew up. This program will broadly focus on Pennsylvania's prehistoric peoples, from the Paleo-era to European contact, chronologically investigating the lifestyles of these mysterious people and how they developed over a period of 10,000 years right in our backyards.
Through Jim's meticulous studies he will utilize demonstrations involving lithic technologies, religion, horticulture, hunting and even linguistic lineage of these ancient peoples, to provide a more complete understanding and appreciation of the land we all call home today.
This program is free and open to the public thanks to the generous sponsorship from ACNB Bank.
