TOUR FULL – WAITING LIST Mark your calendar for 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 (from I-40 Exit 257 it’s 1.5 miles north on AZ-87).
This weekend tour will begin Saturday, September 10, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. ending on Sunday, September 11 around 1:00 p.m. There is a requested donation of $99 per person ($80 for Old Pueblo Archaeology Center and Friends of Pueblo Grande Museum members), which includes all site entry fees and Old Pueblo’s expenses, but no transportation, lodging, or meals.
Archaeologists Rich Lange and Al Dart lead this car-caravan educational tour to sites where archaeologists conducted excavations during the Arizona State Museum’s 1983-2016 Homol’ovi Research Program, and to the Rock Art Ranch petroglyphs in Chevelon Canyon. The tour will visit three of the largest Ancestral Hopi pueblos and an Early Agricultural-to-Great Pueblo period site in Homolovi State Park just outside Winslow, plus spectacular petroglyph panels near Winslow and at Rock Art Ranch south of Holbrook, Arizona. Sites to be visited on Saturday include the Homolovi I (1280-1400 CE), Homolovi II (1360-1400), and Homolovi IV (1260-1280) pueblos, a Basketmaker II (Early Agricultural period, 500-850) to Pueblo II/III (1150-1225) village site, and a petroglyphs site north of Winslow. On Sunday we’ll head to the Rock Art Ranch south of Holbrook to visit Brandy’s Pueblo (1225-1254) and a replica Navajo farmstead site before hiking down into Chevelon Canyon to see petroglyphs dating between 8000 BCE and the mid-1200s. Participants will provide their own lodging, meals, and transportation.
Donations are due 10 days after reservation request or by 5 p.m. Friday September 2nd, whichever is earlier: 520-798-1201 or email@example.com.
