In arid parts of the Americas, such as the American Southwest and Great Basin, paleofeces are found in abundance in nearly every rockshelter. Much can be learned from the genetic study of such artifacts. In this public lecture, Dr. Kemp will discuss the growing field of the genetic study of paleofeces with regards to human migration and interaction in the Southwest and Great Basin, reconstructing ancient diets, and also that of turkey domestication.
