Stone Monuments of Western Europe
Thursday, March 2, 2006 - 4:00pm

Speaker: Dr. Max Pavesic (PSU, Adjunct)
Location: Cramer Hall, Room 41

Event is Free and Open to the Public

Large-scale stone monuments dot the western European landscape in a variety of locales, built by a diversity of cultures over thousands of years and reflect an array of meanings. During the slide presentation we will visit some of the most famous prehistoric sites, such as, Avebury, Stonehenge, Carnac, and Tarxien among others. Topics to be addressed vary from current archaeological interpretations to folklore and fancy as these structures continue to stir the human imagination.

Max Pavesic, recently retired from the faculty at Boise State University, has made Portland his home. His research has focused on archaeology in the Snake River but has also taken him to Europe and work on megalithic features.
