Dr. Ed Herrmann is the Executive Director of the newly formed Indiana University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (IUMAA). The museum is the result of a merger between the Glenn Black Laboratory of Archaeology and the Mathers Museum of World Cultures, and is planning to open in mid-2022. As a university museum, the IUMAA’s mission is to create and disseminate knowledge and promote social justice and environmental stewardship. Ed’s talk will describe partnerships with Tribal Nations affiliated with the Angel Mounds Site in southern Indiana aimed at developing collaborative museum exhibitions and research. Ed will also discuss recent research observations indicating that most of the mounds at the Site are aligned to solar, lunar, and celestial events and movements.
