The UCF Anthropology Department and the Central Florida chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America will host a series of lectures beginning Friday, Oct. 23. The series will feature scholars with different specializations within archaeology.

The first of three lectures, “Four Thousand Years of Andean Gold,” will be delivered by Mark Aldenderfer of the University of Arizona. Aldenderfer specializes in the cultural and biological adaptations of societies in high-altitude regions, primarily in the Peruvian Andes. He will be speaking at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23, in room 108 of the Psychology Building.

Anyone who plans to attend Aldenderfer’s lecture should contact Tosha Dupras, associate chair of Anthropology, at 407-823-6725 or for parking information and a parking pass.
