Dr. Emily Brown presents: Prehistoric Instruments of the Southwest. Studying music from an archaeological perspective may seem counterintuitive because the music cannot be reconstructed, but much can be learned about music in the past by examining instruments found in archaeological sites, analyzing the contexts in which they were found, and by supplementing with additional lines of evidence such as imagery, ethnographic information, and written accounts from the contact period. This presentation provides an overview of the different musical instruments found in archaeological sites from the Southwest. Light Refreshments Served.
