Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought”
March 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 6-8:30 pm, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” dinner presentation will feature “Ancient Southwestern Native American Pottery” by archaeologist Allen Dart at U-Like Asian Buffet Restaurant, 330 S. Wilmot Rd., Tucson. In this presentation Mr. Dart will show and discuss Native American pottery styles that characterized specific eras in the U.S. Southwest prior to about 1450, and will talk about how archaeologists use pottery for dating archaeological sites and interpreting ancient lifeways. He will indicate how the things people make change in style over time, how different styles are useful for identifying different cultures and for dating archaeological sites, and why context in archaeology is important for making these interpretations. His many illustrations will include examples of ancient pottery types made throughout the American Southwest from about 2000 to 500 years ago.
Guests may select and purchase their own dinners from the restaurant’s menu. There is no entry fee but donations will be requested to benefit Old Pueblo’s educational efforts. Because seating is limited in order for the program to be in compliance with the Fire Code, those wishing to attend must call 520-798-1201 and must have their reservations confirmed before 5 p.m. on the Wednesday before the program date.
