The East Tennessee Society of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the McClung Museum present Dr. Walt Klippel of UT’s Anthropology department speaking on “North American Antebellum Foodways: Challenges for Faunal Identifications from Enslaved African and Euro American Contexts.”

Dr. Klippel’s research focuses on historic subsistence practices, with a particular emphasis on marine resources, taphonomy, and historic systems of provisioning. His recent work includes the analysis of military food supply systems and diet at Brimstone Hill and the analysis of provisioned and non-provisioned foods at Poplar Forest, an antebellum plantation in Central Virginia.

Lectures are held at 7:30 p.m. in the McClung Museum Auditorium and are open to the public and free of charge. A reception will follow each.
