Yellowstone Obsidian Movement Through Time

Yellowstone Obsidian Movement Through Time Paul Oberheim, University of Wyoming Graduate Student & SCRAP volunteer Thursday April 15, 2021 7-8pm

The goal of this lecture is to present the process of how a research topic for a Master’s Thesis is formed with an emphasis on gathering sources and formulating hypotheses to guide the research. The plan is to use a database formed by the University of Wyoming consisting of all radiocarbon-14 dates collected in the United States in conjunction with information on the densities of obsidian from sites in the Greater Yellowstone Area. The goal is to find trends of trade and population through time, building off of other projects and data already collected from the University to create original work using everyone's favorite stone.
