A One-Day Archaeological Adventure

If you have ever had a desire to have a "hands on experience" in archaeology we offer the very unique opportunity to work with a team recording and documenting ancient sites on public lands administered by the Bureau Of Land Management. Under the direction of a professional archaeologist, participants are instructed in the lifeways of the ancients, proper site etiquette and archaeological methodology: mapping procedures, artifact identification and recording.

The information gathered on these expeditions is submitted to the Bureau Of Land Management to help them determine the future of these sites, and is recorded in the Arizona Historical Records.
