“The Earliest Apache in Arizona: Evidence and Arguments”
November 16, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This free presentation by archaeologist Deni Seymour is sponsored by the Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society, which will be held on Monday, November 16, 2015 at the Banner University Medical Center in the Duval Auditorium (1501 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson) at 7:30-9:00 PM. Seymour will present evidence from recent research that ancestral Apaches were in the southern Southwest at least as early as the A.D. 1300s. Some of this evidence comes from chronometric dates obtained from a feature type that comparative ethnographic information (including rarely used land claims documents) indicates were used for storage. These features, called platform caches, provide rare and ideal material for accurate dating because they are often covered with grass or leaves. Other evidence (pottery, roasting pits, etc.) will also be presented that support a continuous sequence of use from at least as early as the A.D. 1300s through the late 1700s.
