Event description

Description

Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Ted Timreck screens segments of his new work in progress about the effects of human adaptation to the North Atlantic environment going back to the Paleolithic. Filmed on location in Labrador, Quebec and the northern Isles of Scotland, the documentary looks at the sea-going peoples who evolved on both sides of the ocean and the difficulties that archeologists have in understanding the development and importance of these cultures. Ted is a Research Associate in the Anthropology Department at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. Acton Memorial Library; free.
