Faculty Speaker Series with Dr. Geoffrey Ludvik: Aliens, Giants, and Lost Tribes: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology

April 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Due to illness, we’re having a slight change of plans for tomorrow’s Spotlight Faculty Speaker event. Dr. Denise Ludvik’s talk on genetic engineering will be postponed to a future date, but her husband (and fellow St. Ambrose faculty member) Dr. Geoffrey Ludvik will be presenting on a likewise fascinating topic.

During the academic year, Dr. Geoffrey Ludvik is a beloved history and Latin teacher as well as an active archeologist outside of school. His engaging presentations both in and out of the classroom are a real treat so I encourage you to join if you’re available. Please see below for more details!

God bless,

Aliens, Giants, and Lost Tribes: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology
with Dr. Geoffrey Ludvik

Tuesday, April 16 from 7:00-8:15 PM | 3 Point Place, Madison

“How do we know the pyramids weren’t built by aliens??? This talk introduces the principles used by historians and archaeologists to separate fact from fiction when examining ancient evidence. This is done focusing on an example from close to home: the Effigy Mounds of Southern Wisconsin and their alleged connection to the Lost Tribes of Israel.”
