Jessica Kowalski, archaeologist for the Arkansas Archeological Survey’s Fayetteville Research Station, will present “Community and Ceremonialism in Northwest Arkansas: A Research Design for Investigating Mississippian Occupation in the Ozarks” at the next Arkansas Ouachita Chapter meeting Archeological Society at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Maurice room of the National Park Medical Center, 1910 Malvern Road.
The free program is open to the public.
Kowalski’s talk will focus on his research goals in northwest Arkansas and the connection between the indigenous occupation of the Ozarks after 1000 AD and the Spiro phenomenon in eastern Oklahoma. Kowalski will review previous work in the area and establish a research plan to explore Mississippi communities in the Ozarks.
Kowalski is the newest addition to the Arkansas Archeological Survey. Before joining the Inquiry, she was an archaeologist at the Center for Archaeological Studies at the University of Southern Alabama in Mobile. She recently graduated from the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa.
