“Archaeology of the Southwest” 12-session class
September 16, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - December 16, 2020 @ 8:30 pm
“Archaeology of the Southwest” 12-session class taught by archaeologist Allen Dart will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. each Wednesday online via Zoom from September 16 through December 16, 2020 except we’ll skip October 21 and November 25.
“Archaeology of the Southwest” is an introductory course that provides a basic overview of the United States Southwest’s ancestral cultures. Its twelve weekly evening class sessions will cover cultural sequences, dating systems, subsistence strategies, development of urbanization, abandonments of different areas at different times, and the general characteristics of major cultural groups that have lived in the Southwest over the past 13,000-plus years. Besides offering an up-to-date synthesis of southwestern cultures for anyone interested in the archaeology of the Southwest, the class is the equivalent of the Prehistory of the Southwest course developed by the Arizona Archaeological Society (AAS) and so can be used as prerequisite for all other courses offered in the AAS Certification/Education Program. Instructor Allen Dart, a registered professional archaeologist, is the executive director of Old Pueblo Archaeology Center.
