Ancient stone tools topic of talk

James Woods, director of the Herrett Center for Arts and Sciences, will host “The Stone Tools and Weapons of Ancient Idaho,” a brown bag program at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave., on Friday, from noon to 1 p.m.

Wood’s program will focus on his studies in the Northwest and in Guatemala, specializing in the study of ancient stone tools. As an associate professor of anthropology at the College of Southern Idaho, in Twin Falls, he has been conducting experimental studies with his students designed to learn more about ancient stone technology, such as the manufacture and use of stone arrow points and the ancient techniques used to fabricate polished stone jewelry.

The event is free and open to the public and participants are encouraged to bring their lunches. Beverages will be provided.
