Lyceum lecture – Brian Redmond: Before Moses Cleaveland – The Archaeology of Native Americans in the Cuyahoga Valley and Northeast Ohio

February 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

The written record of Native Americans in Northeast Ohio goes back no more than 300 years, yet we now know, thanks to the work of archaeologists, that more than 500 generations of their ancestors inhabited this region. The stone tools, pottery, food remains, and earthworks they left behind provide abundant evidence of their enduring presence, and one important center of this research has been the Cuyahoga River Valley. In this presentation, Dr. Brian Redmond will describe what archaeologists have learned in order to trace the ancient history of these native inhabitants, from the first migrations into the area at the end of the Ice Age some 13,000 years ago to just before the arrival of Europeans when the region was mysteriously abandoned.

Brian G. Redmond, Ph.D. is Curator and James Otis Hower Chair of Archaeology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. He is a native Clevelander and joined the Museum in 1994. Dr. Redmond received his Ph.D. in Anthropology from Indiana University in 1990 and began studies in Anthropology at the University of Toledo where he received the Bachelor of Arts degree in 1981 and the Master of Arts and Education degree in 1985. He maintains appointments as adjunct Associate Professor of Anthropology at Case Western Reserve University and Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Anthropology at Cleveland State University.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Lecture begins at 7:00 p.m.
