“Archaeology of the Southwest” 12-session class with archaeologist Allen Dart will held on Wednesdays from September 16 through December 16, 2020 (except November 25), 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at Old Pueblo Archaeology Center, 2201 W. 44th Street, Tucson (at Tucson Unified School District’s Ajo Service Center, just west of La Cholla Blvd., ½-mile north of John F. Kennedy Park), and by Zoom teleconference.

Archaeology of the Southwest” is an introductory course that provides a basic overview of the United States Southwest’s ancestral cultures. Its twelve weekly evening class sessions will cover cultural sequences, dating systems, subsistence strategies, development of urbanization, abandonments of different areas at different times, and the general characteristics of major cultural groups that have lived in the Southwest over the past 13,000-plus years. Besides offering an up-to-date synthesis of southwestern cultures for anyone interested in the archaeology of the Southwest, the class is the equivalent of the Prehistory of the Southwest course developed by the Arizona Archaeological Society (AAS) and so can be used as prerequisite for all other courses offered in the AAS Certification/Education Program. Instructor Allen Dart, a registered professional archaeologist, is the executive director of Old Pueblo Archaeology Center.

Donation prepayment of $95 ($80 for Old Pueblo Archaeology Center and Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary members) is required within 10 days of reservation request.

Donation payment does not include cost of the recommended text or of optional Arizona Archaeological Society membership. Minimum enrollment 8, maximum 20. Last day to request reservations is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 11.
