In the Beginning: Glaciers, Agriculture, and the Origins of Civilization
May 18, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Wednesday, May 18th
Paolo DiGregorio, Historian and Archaeologist
We are all products and participants in civilization, but what does that word actually mean? How was civilization created? This
talk will examine our distant past to look for the beginnings of our modern way of life. Mr. DiGregorio is a Visiting Lecturer in the
History Department at Bridgewater State University and an Instructor in the Anthropology Department at Wheaton College.
Additionally, he has several years of experience as a Park Ranger with the National Park Service and as a professional archaeologist.
