The Center for Desert Archaeology and Casa Vicente invite all to the fourth season of Archaeology Café, a casual, happy hour-style discussion forum dedicated to promoting community engagement with cultural and scientific research.
On Tuesday, January 3, 2012, Center for Desert Archaeology founder Bill Doelle will share his vision of what Preservation Archaeology is, how and why it developed, and what the future may hold. Bill will be joined by Bernard Siquieros, Education Curator at the Tohono O’odham Nation Cultural Center & Museum and Secretary of the Center’s Board of Directors. Mr. Siquieros will discuss a collaborative Preservation Archaeology and Ethnohistory project that explored the living cultural landscape of the San Pedro River valley.
Come settle in with a drink and a plate of delicious tapas at downtown Tucson’s own Casa Vicente. We meet the first Tuesday of each month from September through May at 6:00 p.m.; presentations begin at 6:15 p.m. Seating is open on a first-come, first-served basis—be ready to make new acquaintances! Our forum opens with a brief, informal presentation on a timely or even controversial topic, followed by a question and answer period and a short break. Our moderator then commences spirited but focused discussion.
