Dr. Brian Hoffman of Hamline University will present “Along the Red Rock Ridge – Archaeology in a Sacred Landscape”
The Red Rock Ridge is an outcrop of Sioux Quartzite that stretches some 20
miles across the prairies and farmlands of southwestern Minnesota. A team
of archaeologists, historians, naturalists, and American Indian elders has been working to understand the cultural and natural history of this unique landscape. They have documented a diverse range of archaeology sites from ancient stone quarries to astronomical observatories. Dr. Hoffman will discuss how this collaborative work has transformed our understanding of sacred places and human history.
