Title: Pre-Hispanic Turkey Domestication, Husbandry and Management in the North American Southwest

Speaker: Dr. Cyler Conrad

Cost: Free Admission

Limit: 180, first-come, first-served

In this third Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lecture in the 2019-2020 series, Dr. Cyler Conrad, University of New Mexico, uses information from animal bones at archaeological sites, and studies of turkey ancient DNA and stable isotopes (as a proxy for turkey diets), to identify long-term trends in the domestication, husbandry and management of these birds (Meleagris gallopavo) throughout the recent past. Dr. Conrad will also provide case study examples from the northern Rio Grande to illustrate the diversity and complexity of human-turkey interaction in the Pueblo world, and what this means for human-turkey interaction today.
