Presentation of the Minor
Friday, April 1, 12:15-1 p.m., Hillyer 109

Archaeology is a method for learning about the human past through the study of artifacts and other material remains. The interdepartmental Archaeology Program is offered as a minor to supplement work in a major field such as art, classical language and literature, geosciences, anthropology and history. Lunch will be provided.



The Annual Phyllis Williams Lehman Lecture: The lecture is sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America-Western Massachusetts Society and honors the late Haydenville resident Phyllis Williams Lehmann. A field archaeologist and professor of the history of art at Smith from 1946 until her retirement in 1978, Lehmann was internationally known for her successful excavations in Samothrace, where in 1949, she unearthed a life-size marble statue of a winged Nike - the goddess of victory - dating from the second century B.C.
