El Nino, Canoes, and Currents: Ancient Seafaring in the Pacific
with MNCH and University of Oregon anthropologist Scott Fitzpatrick
For millennia, people have traveled across seas and oceans to settle new lands—and these contacts have dramatically altered the course of human history. MNCH associate director Scott Fitzpatrick, an expert in the human colonization of the Pacific Islands, will discuss some exciting clues that archaeology is revealing about the environmental and social reasons behind ancient seafaring.
