In the 1970s, archaeological surveyors working on the Manti-La Sal National Forest in Southeastern Utah documented hundreds of Ancestral Puebloan sites on the flanks of Elk Ridge and the Abajo Mountains, collecting thousands of surface artifacts. These collections are invaluable sources of information, and are often the only source of dating and cultural use information for some sites. Come and join Edge of the Cedars Museum staff and archaeologists from the Manti-La Sal National Forest once again as we continue to catalog these collections! You will learn how to identify Ancestral Puebloan ceramics, get introduced to skills in stone artifact identification, and see the inner-workings of a museum. Most of all, you’ll learn how the information captured in the artifacts brings to life a complex story of life and migration during Ancestral Puebloan times. We hope to see you this summer!
