"Iroquoia" author, Bill Engelbrecht to speak at SRAC on Tuesday, May 7th

William Engelbrecht, PhD
William Engelbrecht, professor emeritus of anthropology, joined the Buffalo State faculty in 1973 and later initiated a summer field study program for undergraduate students at the Eaton Archaeological Site, a mid-sixteenth-century Iroquois village in West Seneca, New York. He led the field school program for 17 years, during which time students unearthed the remains of three Iroquois longhouses and amassed a vast collection of artifacts such as arrowheads, stone tools, and pottery.

He recently completed the task of sorting, categorizing, and cataloging 335,433 pieces of debris found by students at the Eaton Site. Dr. Engelbrecht has spent the last two years trying to fit Madison Point bases and tips together and then trying to figure out what the distribution of mends mean, and will present the results of this interesting and arduous journey in the search of the answers regarding this important Iroquoian site.

Engelbrecht's presentation skills allow people of all ages to enjoy his talks where you are sure to walk away with a greater understanding of archaeological research of the Iroquois and the dedication it takes to complete the research covered in this presentation.He is Always an interesting speaker and is just a great person who wants to share his knowledge in a non-threatening way with everyone who attends!

SRAC is located at 345 Broad Street Waverly, NY. Presentation is from 6:30 - 7:30pm. Admission Donation requested: Adults $6, Srac members $4, students free! Come early and visit the SRAC museum for free with your admission!
