Following guidelines issued by federal, state, and municipal authorities, and out of sincere concern for your safety and welfare, as well as that of our community, we are temporarily closing our physical offices until further notice. Please note that shipments for your bookstore purchase may be delayed indefinitely. PDF purchases are strongly encouraged, however, as you can still enjoy those remotely while giving us much-needed support during this challenging time.
Your online donations and membership gifts are also greatly appreciated. We’re already working on new ways to connect with you.
We have postponed the following events:
- March 29, Annual Members’ Meeting at the Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum
- April 4, Hands-On Archaeology class, “How Did People Make and Use Atlatls?” with Allen Denoyer
- April 5, Tea and Archaeology with Paul Reed and Theresa Pasqual
- April 7, Archaeology Café with Paul Reed at the Loft Cinema
- May 5, Archaeology Cafe with John R. Welch at the Loft Cinema
For the time being, Hands-On Archaeology is also canceling its upcoming in-person classes, as well as its presence at Mission Garden and Steam Pump Ranch.
Thank you very much for your patience and understanding, and please stay tuned as we explore new ways of sharing our programming. We will continue sharing Preservation Archaeology blogs and Southwest Archaeology Today to help keep us all connected, and we have previous Cafés and Teas at our YouTube channel. For more ways of staying connected to the past, please enjoy and explore our free online resources.
The profound interest in the human condition across time and place you share with us is so important in times like these. Empathy, compassion, and pragmatism will see us through.
Keep well and sound,
William H. Doelle
President and CEO
