Between the Caves: Landscape Archaeology of the Paleolithic in the French Central Pyrenees

2014 Hallam L. Movius, Jr. Public Lecture by Margaret W. Conkey

6:00 PM Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at the Geological Lecture Hall (24 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02138). A reception will follow at the Peabody Museum galleries (11 Divinity Avenue). Free and open to the public.

Archaeologist and scholar Margaret Conkey has devoted over forty years to researching the caves and landscapes of southwestern Europe, with a focus on the cave art of the French Pyrenees. Since 2006 her international team has been excavating the region’s first intact open-air site, and has found artifacts dating back to the Paleolithic era 17,000 years ago. Prof. Conkey has also led the movement toward understanding cave art and other archaeological materials through the lens of gender and feminism.

Margaret W. Conkey is Professor Emerita, in the Department of Archaeology at the University of California, Berkeley.
