On October 21, 2014, Dr. Jerry Howard (Arizona Museum of Natural History) will explain how he became the leading expert on irrigation canals built and maintained by the Hohokam people of ancient Arizona.
Archaeology Café is an informal forum where adults can learn more about the Southwest’s deep history and speak directly to experts. We have based Archaeology Café on the science pub or science cafe model that developed in Europe and quickly spread to major American cities. At Archaeology Café, we break down the static, jargon-laden dynamic of traditional lectures, and have an expert share some ideas with the group in ways that get discussion going. (Food and drink make things a little livelier, too.)
The program is free, but participants are encouraged to order their own refreshments. Although kids may attend with adult supervision, Archaeology Cafés are best for adults and young adults.
If accommodation is needed due to disability, please contact Linda Pierce by email or phone, (520) 882-6946, ext. 23.
