Are you one of the many who are fascinated by archaeology and all that it uncovers, yet intimidated by the field’s breadth and complexity? Then join Archaeology Southwest at their Archaeology Cafés for accessible archaeology, along with tasty food and beverage!
The Cafés let the public interact with experts in Southwestern archaeology through moderated yet relaxed and jargon-free presentations. This season of the program will explore how archaeologists “know what they know.”
The Cafés are held at restaurants in both Phoenix and Tucson and are free and open to all. Upcoming presentations include:
- Ethnoarchaeology at Hopi: Opening a Window into the Past with Dr. Chuck Adams of the Arizona State Museum on December 16, 2014, at Macayo’s on Central in Phoenix.
- When the New World Was Colonized with Dr. Todd A. Surovell of the University of Wyoming on January 6, 2015, at Casa Vicente in Tucson.
For a complete listing of the upcoming cafés, please visit archaeologysouthwest.org. And, if you can’t join in on the fun in person, please know that all cafés are filmed and available for viewing on Archaeology Southwest’s website.
