Archaeology of the Southwest is an introductory course that provides a basic overview of the U.S. Southwest’s ancestral cultures. Its twelve 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 is a registered professional archaeologist and executive director of Old Pueblo Archaeology Center.
Donations are due 10 days after reservation request or by 5 p.m. Friday May 28, whichever is earlier. To register of for more information contact Old Pueblo at 520-798-1201 or email@example.com.
