The Archeology of Arizona – Special Presentation by Jack Lasseter
February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15
Have you ever wondered why there seems to be so many more archeological sites here in the Southwest than in other parts of the country? It’s the dry climate. Wherever you travel in Arizona you see archeological sites. This talk tells us about the six major pre-historic peoples in Arizona: the Ancient Puebloan People (Anasazi), the Mogollon, the Hohokam, the Sinagua, the Salado and the Patayan. Jack will also discuss the earlier Paleo-Indians, the archeological techniques used by the professionals, and some details about the archeologists who have made this field so famous in Arizona. A great addition to our Arizona knowledge, this field of study makes us well aware that we are not the only people to have lived here. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. $15 per lecture. A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs. Please call for reservations and future dates, 520-398-2252.
