The Central and Western Michigan Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America welcomes Mark Aldenderfer to campus. Dr. Aldenderfer is an anthropologist in the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts at the University of California, Merced.
Dr. Aldenderfer will be giving a free public talk entitled: Archaeological Encounters with Himalayan Vampires! Tales from the High Himalayas.
All cultures have tales of the undead, those dark creatures that live on blood, cause misfortune, and sap the vitality of the living. The people of the Himalayas know them—the sri—through their depredations, oral histories, folk tales, and religious tracts. We now know of them through archaeology. While studying the peopling of the Himalayas, our project uncovered evidence in a dark cave tomb high in the Himalayas of what may be the earliest manifestation—some 2300 years ago– of the sri. In a different cave tomb, we found evidence of a grisly exorcism, one designed to capture, then, destroy, the sri. So join me in exploring the caves and learning about some of the creatures that haunt the peoples of the High Himalayas.
