January 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “The Mogollon Culture of the US Southwest” 12-session online adult education class will be held online on Mondays from January 9 to March 27, 2023 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The class will be taught by Old Pueblo’s Executive Director and Registered Professional Archaeologist Allen Dart, who will explore the archaeology of the ancient Mogollon culture of the American Southwest. The class covers the history of Mogollon archaeology, Mogollon origins, the complex subregional Mogollon “branches,” chronology of habitation, subsistence and settlement patterns through time, artifacts, rock art, religious and social organization, depopulation and movement, and descendant peoples. Minimum enrollment 10 people.
The class meets the requirements of the Arizona Archaeological Society (AAS) Training, Certification and Education (TCE) program’s “Advanced Southwest Archaeology – Mogollon” course. Students seeking AAS Certification are expected to prepare a brief research report to be presented orally or in written or video format. The AAS basic “Archaeology of the Southwest” class is recommended as a prerequisite but this is negotiable with the instructor.
