George C. Frison Institute of Archaeology & Anthropology

Fall Public Lecture

As a public service, the Institute, along with the Wyoming Association of Professional Archaeologists and the State Historic Preservation office sponsors a public lecture each fall near the end of September in conjunction with the fall board meeting. These lectures are given by a prominent archaeologist, but are aimed at a general audience.  The lectures are free and open to the public.
