Wyoming Archaeological Society to meet Thursday

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan-Johnson County Chapter of the Wyoming Archaeological Society will meet Thursday at the Sheridan Holiday Inn. Dinner and a business meeting will begin at 6 p.m. with the presentation starting at approximately 7 p.m. Those interested may join for dinner or just the speaker.

This month’s speaker is Dr. Lawrence Todd, a native of Meeteetse who has conducted archaeological field work on the Great Plains for more than 45 years with much of his research focusing on taphonomy of bison kill sites. Since 2002, Todd splits his time between researching early human paleoecology in northwest Ethiopia and prehistoric montane/alpine land use in northwest Wyoming.

Todd will present “A 3-million-year-old mystery — How did Lucy die?” The presentation will focus on the research around “Lucy,” including a recent hypothesis that the fossil remains show fractures consistent with injuries in accident victims who suffer a vertical deceleration event. Responses to the hypothesis have been mixed. The Sheridan Holiday Inn is located at 1809 Sugarland Drive.
