Brown Bag Lunch Lecture -August 18, 2016

Drawn on Stone

with Tamara Serrao-Leiva

Ancient art was left by people tens of thousands of years ago and is still largely debated among scholars and researchers.  Take a tour through Europe, Africa, and North America, to investigate the different types of rock art, how it was made, and what it could mean. Can we use modern “rock art” to give us an answer? Audience participation is highly encouraged!

Tamara Serrao-Leiva is the Curator of Anthropology at the San Bernardino County museum. Having worked as an archaeologist in cultural resources management, she developed a fascination for the symbols she would see every day in the field. She completed her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara and continued as a graduate student at the University of Sevilla, Spain where she received a Master’s Degree in prehistoric archaeology. She now serves on the board of various non-profits in Redlands and continues to work diligently on the Anthropology and Ethnography Collections at the museum.
