The 50th Anniversary Season of the Archaeological Institute of America, Houston Society continues its Sankofa year – revealing how the past impacts our future – with a FREE Discover Lecture on the significant societal contributions of prehistoric women.

Dr. James M. Adovasio, shares his compelling scientific research on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Brown Auditorium Theater at a talk, “Invisible No More: Reclaiming the Significant Roles of Prehistoric Women.”

Dr. Adovasio is an expert on uncovering perishable items such as baskets, weaving, ropes and cords, etc. which were made and used by women. His research has revealed how women were pivotal in a wide range of culture-building endeavors, including the invention of language, the origins of agriculture, and the conceptualization of boat building. His gender-busting book, The Invisible Sex: Uncovering the True Roles of Women in Pre-History exploded the view of pre-historic women cowering behind boulders while their men hunted in fur skins. Join us as we learn a new story of women in pre-history which emerges with provocative implications for our assumptions about gender today.  KMPG is the underwriter of this boundary-breaking lecture sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America, Houston Society.

The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
