Hobbs State Park Presents How Thieves Steal Time at Archaeological Sites

Caven Clark, PhD of anthropology, and former park archaeologist at the Buffalo National River, will present a program at Hobbs State Park on the history and profile of the current looting problem. He will also address issues that result in damage or degradation of prehistoric and historic archaeological sites. Examples of illegal digging in caves, battlefields, and historic family cemeteries show how these priceless resources are being compromised. 

Clark’s experience includes Great Lakes, Plains, Southwest, and Midwest prehistory, military and civilian frontier archeology, Civil War battlefield sites, prehistoric and historic mining sites, rock art sites, extensive tribal consultation, site stabilization, curation, and public outreach. 

When: Sunday, September 15, 2019 2:00 p.m.
Where: Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area visitor center located on Hwy. 12 just east of the Hwy 12 War Eagle Road intersection 
Cost: FREE

This presentation is a continuation of the Friends of Hobbs Speaker’s Series.
