About

Speakers: Jamie Brandon, PhD & Lydia Rees

Archeologists have studied Ozark bluff shelters since the 1920s. These early studies saw bluff-dwellers essentially as an ancient version of hillbillies. However, with their combination of rarely preserved perishables and deeply stratified deposits, they are an unparalleled source of information about textile arts and plant domestication. Dr. Brandon and Ms. Rees will provide an overview of past and more recent archeological work that complicates the early picture of the prehistoric Arkansas Ozarks and offers possible future directions for research that can futher refine our understanding of Ozark bluff shelters.

Dr. Jamie Brandon is an Associate Research Professor at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and the Arkansas Archeological Survey's UAF Research Station Archeologist. Lydia Rees is a Research Assistant with the Arkansas Archeological Survey and a graduate student in Anthropology at the University of Arkansas.
