NATCHITOCHES, LA – Cane River National Heritage Area, Inc. (CRNHA), will host a lecture at the Grand Ecore Visitor Center on Saturday, September 14, 2019, from 11:00am-12pm entitled "Digital and Traditional Archaeology."
Visitors will learn about the digital blending of old and modern photographs and how they allow us to gain a better understanding of the history of the spaces around us. Mike Mangham, and his brother Mark, the co-owners of Twin Blends Photography, will demonstrate how to blend the digital and the concrete archaeological experience to show what can be rediscovered from the past and preserved for modern audiences. This digital archaeology is pivotal in providing us a window into the past.
The lecture is free and open to the public and will begin on Saturday, September 14th at 11:00 am. Guests are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and enjoy the views offered at Grand Ecore following the presentation.
