      Science on Tap: Petroglyphs of the Kansas Smoky Hills

      Though not well known today, Native American petroglyphs carved on sandstone outcrops exist throughout the Smoky Hills of central Kansas. These carvings provide intriguing, but seldom studied, evidence of early people and the landscape. At this Science on Tap, join us as authors Rex Buchanan, Burke Griggs, and Josh Svaty discuss their new book Petroglyphs of the Kansas Smoky Hills and the challenges this project posed. The book and this presentation feature photographs from 14 sites in Russell, Ellsworth, and Rice counties, providing a rare glimpse into a compelling part of Kansas history.
