The Palm Beach Archaeological Society will present a free lecture on May 24, 2012 starting at 7:00 pm. May’s lecture is titled “Ivory through the Ages: Connections and More” and will be presented by Robert Weisblut.
Mr. Weisblut will detail the overall historical and commercial use of ivory through the ages; explain what exactly constitutes ivory; what animals are used for these purposes; and give examples of what kind of ivory can be found at archaeological sites (particularly sites in Florida). There will be a hands-on display, allowing you to get a feel for such artifacts.
Guests are encouraged to bring any ivory objects that they would like examined.
