February 16, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:25 pm
This presentation will be given by archaeologist Dr. Charles Adams for Verde Valley Archaeology Center at Cliff Castle Casino Hotel, Camp Verde, Arizona at 6:30 PM * Dr. Charles Adams is the Curator of Archaeology for the Arizona State Museum. He is also Director of the Homolovi Research Program and a professor of archaeology at the University of Arizona. During summers he directs an archaeological field school at Rock Art Ranch on the analysis of material culture from surveys and excavations of sites and landscapes occupied from 6000 BC to AD 1250. Rock Art Ranch, which encompasses 5,000 acres between Winslow and Holbrook, is a cattle ranch and home to one of the best preserved and most extensive collections of ancient petroglyphs in the world. Images pecked into rocks adorn cliff faces, alcoves and overhangs in scenic Chevelon Canyon. Rock Art Ranch has immense archaeological significance, with researchers from the Smithsonian Institution, Heard Museum and other museums and universities visiting regularly.
