High Noon Talk: Texas Pictographs
April 3, 2019 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Discover the lasting remnants of ancient Texans through their art.
Held on the first Wednesday of every month, High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through this casual lunch-time lecture.
In the Lower Pecos Canyonlands of Texas, beautiful murals were painted more than 4,000 years ago, becoming the oldest "books" in North America. Join Jessica Lee, the Executive Director of the Shumla Archeological Research and Education Center, for a talk on these endangered paintings, who created them, what they represent, and how to protect them. The years of research on these murals has helped answer broad questions about prehistoric people in what is now Texas.
