Secrets in Stone: Deciphering Ancient Arabian Rock Art (Public Event)

A Science on Tap Event

Tuesday July 22, 2014
7:30pm - 9:00pm
Off Campus, Free State Brewing Company
Saudi Arabia is still largely terra incognita, but its most remote reaches are home to some of the best rock art on the planet. Recent research by a team of scientists and a world-class photographer has unlocked many of the mysteries contained within the ancient carvings. Dramatic scenes of hunters and their packs of dogs dispatching extinct wild bulls and other large game bring long-past events to life in amazing detail. For this Science on Tap, Sandra Olsen, archaeologist and KU professor of Museum Studies, will share her exciting adventures and important insights about Arabia's deep cultural history. Science on Tap takes place at Free State Brewing Co., 636 Massachusetts St., Lawrence, KS. No reservations. Arrive early for a table.
