Denison Symposium Probes Local Prehistoric Occupation Sites
Posted: April 11, 2005
The Denison University Laura C. Harris Symposium on Native American Culture, "Identity, Gender and Politics," presents Denison Professor Tod Frolking to discuss "Licking County Landscapes and the Distribution of Prehistoric Occupation Sites." Frolking's lecture will be at 4 p.m. on Wednesday (April 13) in the Burton Morgan Lecture Hall and is free and open to the public.
"This presentation will probe native American links to Licking County's landscapes -- from the landscape's perspective," says Frolking. He is planning to describe "the dynamic landscapes at the end of the last glacial period, when humans likely arrived in the central Ohio region, and subsequent changes in both the environment and material cultural record through late Prehistoric time."
Frolking joined the Denison faculty in 1984. He is an associate professor of geology and geography and is serving as chair of the environmental studies department. He earned his bachelor's degree at the University of New Hampshire and his master's and doctoral degrees at the University of Wisconsin.
