Science on Tap: Petroglyphs of the Kansas Smoky Hills
Wednesday, November 20
Free State Brewing Co., 636 Massachusetts St., Lawrence KS
Though not well known today, Native American petroglyphs carved on sandstone outcrops exist throughout what is now known as the Smoky Hills of central Kansas. These carvings provide intriguing, but seldom studied, evidence of early people and the landscape. At this Science on Tap, join us as authors Rex Buchanan, Burke Griggs, and Josh Svaty discuss their new book Petroglyphs of the Kansas Smoky Hills and the challenges this project posed. The book and this presentation feature photographs from 14 sites in Russell, Ellsworth, and Rice counties, providing a rare glimpse into a compelling part of Kansas history. Our friends from The Raven bookstore will be on hand too with copies of the book available for purchase.
