Natural world guides archaeologists in their investigation of ancient people

URBANA, Ill. – People have lived in Illinois for over 15,000 years and have used the natural resources the state has to offer in different ways through time.

Archaeologists draw on many fields in natural resource sciences to understand the people of the past and how they lived. Michelle Berg Vogel, an University of Illinois Extension natural resources program coordinator, will give an overview of Illinois' prehistory and discuss how archaeology informs and is formed by research in the natural resources in a free online webinar.

The webinar begins at 1 p.m. April 14. Register in advance at Make requests for reasonable accommodation to Erin Garrett at Early requests are encouraged to allow sufficient time to meet access needs.
