Williamson County Public Library
Although tattoos are increasingly popular in American society, the practice is not a new one. Tattooing spans at least 5,000 years of human history, and has played an important role in hundreds of ancient, historic, and Indigenous cultures from around the globe. Come hear state archaeologist Aaron Deter-Wolf from the Tennessee Division of Archaeology discuss his research on ancient tattooing, including identification of the world’s oldest tattooed mummy, experimental work with bone needles, and his appearance on an episode of NOVA earlier this year discussing the tattoos on Ötzi the Iceman.
This program is provided as part of our adult summer reading program, Exercise Your Mind. READ! The summer reading program encourages reading by adults during June and July as part of their reading summer fun. The WCPL 2016 summer reading program is made possible due to the support of our Williamson County Public Library Foundation.
