17Mar2015: Cafe Scientific Launceston

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday 17th March 2015 at 7.00pm at Jericho’s, 4 Northgate St., Launceston PL15 8BD - as usual.
As we start our 5th year at Café Sci Launceston, we hope you are looking forward to the interesting programme of speakers which starts this month with the following talk:

“Stone Tools and the Peopling of America” by Professor Bruce Bradley, University of Exeter.

Professor Bruce Bradley, Director of the Experimental Archaeology Masters’ Degree programme at the University of Exeter is an expert on the history of Neolithic stone tool production and himself a highly accomplished flint knapper. Together with a colleague (Professor Dennis Stanford) he is the co-author of a recently published book “Across Atlantic Ice” which sets out the evidence that the Clovis culture on the continent of North America was established more than 20,000 years ago by intrepid seal hunters from southern Europe who voyaged around the edge of the ice-sheet then covering much of the northern hemisphere. The people of the ancient Clovis culture of Midwest America made stone tools of a very distinctive form which resemble very closely by those made by the people of the Solutrean culture of Southern France and Spain. The long held orthodoxy of how humans arrived in America was that the people who were to become the native Americans were those that entered Alaska via a land bridge from Siberia that spanned the Bering Sea some 12,000 years ago. However, this work by Professor Bradley and colleagues sets the time of the first colonization of America by humans to a very much earlier epoch.
We look forward to seeing you at Jericho’s on the 17th.
