Our final featured symposium is “Tracking the Human Landscape of the Old River Bed Delta at the Pleistocene-Holocene Transition, ” organized by Daron Duke and D. Craig Young. The latest archaeological finds from the Old River Bed delta reveal a distinguishing terminal Pleistocene component alongside telling new information about its ancient environment. The delta is best known for its early Holocene record, but these data allow for a richer temporal, spatial, and social context to be developed. The finding of human footprints presents an opportunity for even finer resolution. This symposium highlights the interdisciplinary and collaborative efforts now underway centered on examining people’s relationship with a once vast deltaic wetland as it rose, fell, and disappeared in the Bonneville Basin, the largest lacustrine basin in the desert west.
In addition to the featured symposia and plenary session, we are also excited to host three general sessions of 10-12 papers each along with two poster sessions of 10 posters each. The 38th GBAC will be busy from start to finish!
