FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — One of three finalists for a job as curator at the University of Alaska Museum of the North is scheduled to speak at a public seminar this week.
University of Alaska Fairbanks officials say Josh Reuther (RUTH'-ER) will speak about the archaeology of the Kuskokwim River.
Officials say Reuther is a Fairbanks-based archaeologist with Northern Land Use Research Alaska, a resources predevelopment firm.
The free public seminar is scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. Friday in the Reichardt Building at UAF.
Reuther is a finalist for the dual position of museum archaeology curator and assistant professor at UAF's anthropology department.
Another finalist for the position, anthropologist Kathyrn Krasinski (cra-SIN'-skee), spoke Tuesday about prehistoric subsistence.
