“Prehistory of the Southwest” is an introductory course in the study of the American Southwest, developed by the Arizona Archaeological Society to provide a basic overview of this region’s archaeology and cultures. Ten weekly 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 prehistory for anyone interested in the archaeology of the Southwest, the class can be used as prerequisite for all other courses offered to members of the Arizona Archaeological Society (AAS) enrolled in or interested in enrolling in the AAS Certification Program. Instructor Allen Dart is a registered professional archaeologist employed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is volunteer executive director of Old Pueblo Archaeology Center.
Reservations and prepayment required, registration deadline Friday January 11. 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org to register or for more information.
