Cowan’s Ford Dam was under construction in the mid-twentieth century, archaeologists worked to uncover material evidence of American Indian lifeways going back thousands of years in areas that would soon be beneath Lake Norman.

In this talk, Mary Beth Fitts presents the results of that work and other archaeology projects in the Catawba River valley, highlighting details of Native women's food and craft production. Fitts is a Research Archaeologist with the Research Laboratories of Archaeology, UNC-Chapel Hill. All are welcome.

This event is sponsored by the departments of History, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and Anthropology.
