Our other lectures today focus on two very different times in the history of this area.  First we do a brainstorming session on prehistoric life.  As students suggest ideas and as we prod them on, we develop the vocabulary that we will need to understand our field trip to the nearby Archeological Center tomorrow.  The key concept is the move from hunter/gathering society to a sedentary agricultural one.  Our discussion thus moves into the details of the tools, plants, and materials necessary to this life.  We will see all this and more in the field tomorrow.

When break time comes, Dr. V. has made a trip to the nearby market.  Today she found a fresh offering of "maras des bois", a special kind of strawberry that is quite small and exceptionally sweet and flavorful.  You don't find these every day . . .
