Dr. Katherine Dungan shares “Look on my works, ye mighty: Modeling Chaco Great House Visibility” at our January café.
“Both now and in the past, visibility–views to, from, and between places–has been a key part of peoples’ experience of the landscape and of architectural space, and visibility has played a small but important role in our understanding of Chaco Canyon and the greater Chaco World. I will discuss how archaeologists use computer modeling to reconstruct past visibility, as well as the place of visibility in the very different histories of two great house communities near Chaco Canyon.”
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.
