About this Event
500 University Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607https://mag.rochester.edu/events/detours/
Spooky season is in full swing, which means it’s the perfect time to team up with our favorite Archaeologist, Dr. Alexander J. Smith* from the Archaeological Institute of America’s Rochester Society, to dig up all the fun facts about dead objects in MAG’s collection. Alex will take us on a mind jostling journey back in time to see how people lived, died, how their bodies have been preserved, how to differentiate between a decayed piece of garbage vs. an invaluable ancient artifact, and all the mysterious/eerie/dead things he’s discovered in the field. Join us if you dare!
Space is limited. Your DeTOUR℠ ticket includes museum admission.
*Dr. Alexander J. Smith is an archaeologist and a Professor of Anthropology at SUNY Brockport where he specializes in survey and landscape archaeology, Western New York History, and colonialism in the Western Mediterranean (Iron Age to the 20th century). He is the director of Frost Town Archaeology in Naples, New York and co-director of the Torre d’en Galmes Archaeological Project in Menorca, Spain. He teaches ten different courses at SUNY Brockport, has published over a dozen articles, has done digs all around the world, can speak Italian, and in his free time he enjoys hiking, reading, opera, art, and leading DeTOURs℠ for MAG.
