Taking an archaeological perspective on the past, Jeffrey Girard traces native human habitation in northwest Louisiana from the end of the last Ice Age, through the formation of the Caddo culture in the tenth century BCE, to the early nineteenth century. Employing the results of recent scientific investigations, The Caddo and Their Ancestors: Archaeology and the Native People of Northwest Louisiana depicts a distinct and dynamic population spanning from precolonial times to the dawn of the modern era.  

Please join us Saturday, September 15 at 2 p.m. at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum as Jeff Girard, state regional archaeologist and assistant professor at Northwestern State University, discusses recent archaeological investigations and the implications for understanding the early Caddo peoples.

This event is free and open to the public.
