UNM professor honored by book dedication

In the introduction of the book, his European colleagues wrote, “One of the high points of the conference was the thematic session organized in honor of Prof. Lawrence Guy Straus, whose seminal and extensive work on the Solutrean adaptations in Northern Iberia has strongly influenced all developments in LGM studies across Iberia and beyond. Prof. Straus is now retired, but we hope that he can keep contributing for many years with his invaluable insights on the Late Pleistocene adaptations in Western Europe. He authored the first chapter of this book, and we gratefully dedicate the whole volume to him and his remarkable career.”
