Java Jolt Lecture: Paleoera Artifacts & Artforms

March 7, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Friends of Alexandria (FOAA) is sponsoring a Java Jolt lecture with William “Jack” Hranicky. Jack will present an illustrated lecture on recently discovered Virginia artifacts and art forms, possibly dating to the paleoera. He’ll discuss two new rock art sites, one containing a mammoth/mastodon glyph. Artifacts discussed will include a new knife form, a mega chopper, and bipoints. He will also highlight two new potential sites, Peters Mountain and Rixieville, both containing possible Pleistocene features. Jack is a former chair of the Alexandria Archaeological Commission (AAC). The lecture is free and light refreshments will be served. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended.
