q Dr. Michael B. Collins—“Searching for the First Americans”
Dr. Collins is Research Associate at the Texas Archaeology Research Laboratory, University of Texas-Austin. His interest, research, and publications in Paleoindian sites and culture is deep and extensive. Among his many publications is his book on Clovis Blade Technology (University of Texas Press). His talk will focus on the growing evidence of a pre-Clovis culture in the Americas that calls for a revision of the older traditional depictions of who were the first Americans and how they arrived here.
q Dr. Robert A. Ricklis—“Emergent Cultural Complexity at Buckeye Knoll”
Dr. Ricklis is Director of the Corpus Christi, Texas office of Coastal Environments, Inc. He is an expert in the archaeology of the Texas coastal zone, as well as the ethnohistory of the Karankawa tribes and other native groups of the Texas coast. His numerous publications include his book, The Karankawa Indians of Texas (University of Texas Press). His talk examines the evidence linking the Early Archaic lifeways along the Texas coast to cultural development in much of the North American continent.
