NLAS Talks at The Rooms

Dr. Moro speaking at The Rooms
I'm getting in the door now after attending Dr. Oscar Moro Abadia's suberb talk at The Rooms on the history of Palaeolithic art.  Dr. Moro talked about the earliest attempts by scholars to understand the complexity of artistic images from the Palaeolithic as they were first discovered in the late 19th century.  He went on to explore the subsequent evolution of our understanding of Palaeolithic art during the 20th century and the diversification of the discipline that has taken place in the past 30 years or so.  It was fascinating to journey to follow.

You can check out the complete talk on the NLAS Youtube channel .

Tomorrow afternoon, Dr. Barry Gaulton will be speaking about the history and archaeology of Ferryland.  I hope to see you there!
