Join us on April 21 at 5 pm MDT as our Great Basin Archaeologist Sara Sturtz presents “A Natural and Cultural History of Leonard Rockshelter in Nevada.”

In the last of our Spring Lecture Series, Archaeologist Sara Sturtz will discuss how a small mammal assemblage found at Leonard Rockshelter details a paleoenvironmental record of changing local conditions. In addition, Sara will also discuss previous claims of a Pleistocene occupation and when humans actually occupied the shelter.

Leonard Rockshelter is located in Pershing County, Nevada. Robert Heizer excavated the site in 1950 and recovered a modest assemblage of perishable and lithic artifacts, including obsidian flakes in deposits dating to14,900 to 11,610 BP.
