Vista del Rio Archaeological Site ENCORE Free Tour

March 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Old Pueblo Archaeology Center is providing a free ENCORE tour of the Vista del Rio Archaeological Site on Saturday March 2, 2024 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The earlier Vista del Rio Archaeological Site Free Tour from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m., celebrating Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month, filled so quickly after it was announced that archaeologist Allen Dart (Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s executive director) is offering this second, same-day opportunity to tour the site from 1-3 pm. Vista del Rio was an ancient village of the southern Arizona Hohokam archaeological culture, inhabited between 1000 and 1150 CE. Archaeological test excavations there revealed evidence of Hohokam houses, outdoor ovens and pits, and possibly an ancient irrigation canal. These features are no longer visible but in this tour Mr. Dart will show subtle clues to their existence.

Reservations are required by 5 pm. Thursday February 29: 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org.
