TOUR FILLED – WAITING LIST  Saturday and Sunday, June 5-6, 2021, join Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “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). The tours will be conducted at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday to 1:00 p.m. (or later) on Sunday.

Archaeologist Rich Lange will lead this car-caravan educational tour to sites where archaeologists conducted excavations during the Arizona State Museum’s Homol’ovi Research Program from 1983 to 2016 and for which analyses and publications are still in progress. 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.
