About the event

Guillaume Porraz is an archaeologist and prehistorian at the CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research). He specializes in the technical know-how associated with the creation and use of stone tools. Through his work, he explores the processes of adaptation and innovation that have been part of the history of hunter-gatherer societies since their origins, and he conducts excavations in the South-East of France and Southern Africa in partnership with a variety of universities and cultural institutions.

Join us on 17th January for his talk “Eleven Backed Pieces from the Upper Paleolithic of Les Pres De Laure (France): Stylistic Considerations and Functional Solutions”, in which he will explore the lithic assemblage from Les Pres De Laure (Comps-sur-Artuby, Var, France), an open air site that was discovered in 2012.

The talk will be held over zoom from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., with the option to meet in the Dorfman Centre (St. Peter’s College) to watch with other society members and enjoy refreshments.
