The Montana Historical Society is doing a two-month series called Montana History in 9 Easy Lessons. Each session will be live streamed. This week’s lesson is about Pre-Contact Montana. What can archaeology tell us about the earliest inhabitants of the place we now know of as Montana? Join Jessica Bush in an exploration of the Anzick Burial, the Hagan Site, and other significant archaeological discoveries that reveal glimpses into life here from 13,000 to five hundred years ago. About the speaker: Jessica Bush is the State Historic Preservation Office Review and Compliance Officer for the Montana Historical Society. She received her Master’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Montana, where her primary area of interest was pre-contact plains archaeology.
OPI Renewal units will be available. Contact Kirby Lambert at the Historical Society for more information.
