It’s the Pits! The Search for Lewis & Clark’s Lost Fort
by Scotty Moore, Ph.D., an American archaeologist based in Houston, Texas, on January 10, 2016, University of St. Thomas, Houston. Scotty earned a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of Washington and has been studying the history and culture of societies throughout the world over the last 16 years. He has participated and supervised anthropological projects on five continents and throughout the United States and in locales as diverse as the Egyptian Desert and the jungles of Belize. In 2007, he was chosen to host one of the Discovery Channel’s first high definition television programs called “Bone Detectives”; over the course of 23 episodes and 12 countries, Scotty took viewers on a CSI-like exploration of ancient societies, murder victims, and unexplained deaths. Since that time, Scotty has continued to travel, learn about cultures, and explore the world. He has taught at Arizona State University, the University of Washington, and is currently the Program Coordinator for Anthropology at Houston Community College in Texas. In this lecture, Scotty presented the “detective work” that archaeologists used to find Lewis and Clark’s lost fort on the coast of Oregon.
