Tracking Ancient Artifacts at Edge of the Cedars Museum
Manti-La Sal National Forest, Utah, 2012
by Charity Parks Berry, Public Affairs Specialist
Passport In Time volunteers help the Manti-La Sal National Forest and the Edge of the Cedars Museum in Blanding, Utah to catalogue artifacts. The artifacts are from hundreds of Ancestral Puebloan sites that were occupied between about AD 500 and 1300 on the flanks of Elk Ridge and the Abajo Mountains in Southeastern Utah. The information captured in the artifacts brings to life a complex story of migration during Ancestral Puebloan times.
