Extreme History Project Lecture Series: Historic Inscription on the Northern Plains
6–7pm | Hager Auditorium | Free
| Speaker, Tim Urbaniak

Where some see graffiti, others see an important historical record in the random inscriptions on stone surfaces throughout Montana. These inscriptions include names, dates, commentary text and drawings which have been carved, written and painted directly upon the geological formations that comprise the landscape. These inscriptions cover a time period ranging from precontact to contemporary and represent a continual chronology of regional history. Often messages are embedded in these inscriptions that reveal how individuals viewed their identity while traveling in a new cultural landscape, and how those identities shaped the culture we know today. Using current techniques and technologies, Tim Urbaniak documents and unravels the mysteries of these inscriptions found throughout Montana and the west!
