“Encore Homol’ovi and Rock Art Ranch Pueblos and Petroglyphs Tour”

September 18, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - September 19, 2021 @ 1:00 pm

TOUR FILLED – WAITING LIST   On Saturday, September 18 and Sunday, September 19, 2021, join Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Encore Homol’ovi and Rock Art Ranch Pueblos and Petroglyphs Tour” with archaeologist Rich Lange starting at Homolovi State Park Visitor Center (northeast of Winslow – take I-40 Exit 257 and drive 1.5 miles north on Hwy. 87).

Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s June 2021 car-caravan educational tour with archaeologist Rich Lange filled up early, so Rich has agreed to lead this “encore tour” to sites where archaeologists conducted excavations during the Arizona State Museum’s Homol’ovi Research Program from 1983 to 2016. This will be an opportunity to visit three of the largest ancestral Hopi pueblos and an Early Agricultural-to-Great Pueblo period site in Homolovi State Park just outside of Winslow plus spectacular petroglyph panels near Winslow and at Rock Art Ranch south of Holbrook, Arizona. Sites to be visited include the Ancestral Pueblo village sites of Homolovi I (AD 1280-1400), Homolovi II (1360-1400), and Homolovi IV (1260-1280); a Basketmaker II (Early Agricultural) to Pueblo II/III stage (AD 500-850 and 1150-1225) village site; Brandy’s Pueblo (AD 1225-1254); a replica Navajo farmstead site; and petroglyphs dating between 8000 BCE and the mid-1200s on the Rock Art Ranch in Chevelon Canyon south of Holbrook and at a rock art site near Winslow. Participants provide their own lodging, meals, and transportation. It may be necessary for parti­cipants to wear face masks and practice physical distancing if COVID-19 pandemic is not yet under control by the tour dates.

Tour begins at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday to 1:00 p.m. or later on Sunday; $95 donation per person ($76 for Old Pueblo Archaeology Center and Friends of Pueblo Grande Museum members) includes all site entry fees and Old Pueblo’s expenses but no transportation, lodging, or meals. Donations are due 10 days after reservation request or by 5 p.m. Friday September 10, whichever is earlier: 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org.
