(2) UPCOMING ACTIVITIES

 

NOW AVAILABLE!:  “This Picture Rocks” petroglyphs T-shirts to benefit Old Pueblo Archaeology Center!

      Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s brand-new 100% cotton T-shirt features a photograph of a splendid array of ancient petroglyphs at the Picture Rocks archaeological site near Tucson. The glyphs shown on the featured rock art panel appear to represent humans interacting with whimsical animals, a possible bow-and-arrow, and other rock symbols made by Hohokam Indians between A.D. 650 and 1450. Printed on a sky-blue shirt, the design hints at what this magnificent panel looks like against the background of a clear blue southern Arizona sky. Your purchase of this beautiful shirt will benefit Tucson’s Old Pueblo Archaeology Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, allowing Old Pueblo to provide more archaeology and culture education programs for children and adults.

      Available in medium, large, and extra large sizes. $25 per shirt (add $8 for shipping anywhere in the U.S.). Supply is limited! The shirts will be available at Old Pueblo’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” dinner programs and its guided tours to the Picture Rocks petroglyphs site; or can be purchased at Old Pueblo Archaeology Center (by appointment only: 2201 W. 44th Street in Tucson), or we can ship them for an added shipping charge. To purchase your shirts you can mail a check payable to Old Pueblo Archaeology Center, PO Box 40577, Tucson AZ 85717; or call 520-798-1201 to provide your Visa, MasterCard, or Discover card payment authorization; or make your purchase using the PayPal “Donate” button on Old Pueblo’s www.oldpueblo.org home page (and be sure to specify in the online form what your payment is for). Once payment is received, Old Pueblo will make arrangements to deliver your shirts to you.

Tuesday October 1, 2019: Clarkdale, AZ

    “Ancient Southwestern Native American Pottery” free presentation by archaeologist Allen Dart for Clarkdale Historical Society at Yavapai College Verde Campus “M” building’s room M-137, 601 Black Hills Dr., Clarkdale, Arizona; cosponsored by Arizona Humanities*

      2-4 p.m. Free

      In this presentation Mr. Dart shows and discusses Native American ceramic styles that characterized specific peoples and eras in the U.S. Southwest prior to about 1450, and talks about how archaeologists use pottery for dating archaeological sites and interpreting ancient lifeways. He discusses the importance of context in archaeology, how the things people make change in style over time, and how different styles are useful for identifying different cultures and for dating archaeological sites. His many illustrations include examples of ancient pottery types made throughout the American Southwest from about 2000 to 500 years ago. This program is made possible by Arizona Humanities.
