MEMPHIS (AP) – The University of Memphis says three of its professors have received a National Park Service grant to study ancient Native American artifacts.

The university said Monday that it has received a $40,000 grant from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, a program of the National Park Service.

The grant will allow University of Memphis professors Ryan Parish, David Dye and Ying Sing Li to analyze artifacts from central Tennessee. The goal is to understand how people used stone resources and adapted to warmer climates.

The university says the research team is developing new technologies that can identify where Native Americans got their stone resources. The data then can be used to record past migrations and identify how this may have changed over time with stabilizing climate conditions.
