What kinds of tools do you imagine they have? You might say a trowel for excavating, a mesh screen for sifting through the soil, or a sturdy pair of boots for trekking through the landscape. But what about a computer with powerful mapping software, a digital camera, or a satellite? Join us for this free lecture as Dr. Emily Fioccoprile introduces some of the digital tools that archaeologists use to study and visualize the past. In particular, the lecture focuses on how digital archaeology helps us to understand past landscapes. It explores the following questions •What kinds of digital tools do archaeologists have in their toolkit? •How do archaeologists know what places looked like in the past? •How and why do archaeologists create images of past landscapes? •Now that archaeology has gone digital, how useful are traditional methods and paper records? Is digital better than analog? All ages are welcome, and no prior experience with archaeology is necessary. Cost FREE​

At Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park, we have a beautiful va’aki or platform mound that was constructed by the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People during the Classic Period (1150-1450 CE). While there are varying opinions on the purpose of this structure, one thing for certain is they held a lot of significance for the people who built them. At its height, there were over 40 mounds in the Salt River Valley. However, few remain making it vitally important to preserve and protect this site which is where you come in! The va’aki needs routine maintenance to counteract the erosion from wind, rain, and other environmental circumstances. We do this by mudslinging! Which is exactly as it sounds. We apply layers of mud to exposed surfaces to mitigate erosion. This is done by a team of dedicated volunteers known as the PGM Mudslingers. Join us in preserving the va’aki ! No experience required, just be sure to bring some water, a hat, your sunscreen, and your desire to play in the mud! If you would like to learn more or join the team, please email us at pks.PGM.Volunteers@Phoenix.gov .

Dr. Palka’s ongoing archaeological and anthropological project at Lake Mensabak in Chiapas explores past to present Maya use of modified waterscapes for fishing and managing plant communities. At this and other sites in the region, Maya people collectively dug canals and made reservoirs for large-scale, integrated ecological aquaculture. This presentation covers insights from archaeology, Maya collaborations, art, and ethnohistory indicating that fisheries can be added to current research on raised fields, water control, tropical ecology, and community organization in Mesoamerica. Dr. Joel Palka is Associate Professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University. He is also the director of the Mensabak Archaeological Project in Chiapas, Mexico, where he has collaborated with colleagues, students, and local Lacandon Maya for over 15 years. Professor Palka has published on Lacandon Maya culture change, pilgrimage in Mesoamerica, the Classic Maya political collapse, and ancient Maya hieroglyphs and art. Join us for this free International Archaeology Day lecture sponsored by AIA-Central Arizona (Phoenix) Society. All ages are welcome, and no prior experience with archaeology is necessary.

At Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park, we have a beautiful va’aki or platform mound that was constructed by the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People during the Classic Period (1150-1450 CE). While there are varying opinions on the purpose of this structure, one thing for certain is they held a lot of significance for the people who built them. At its height, there were over 40 mounds in the Salt River Valley. However, few remain making it vitally important to preserve and protect this site which is where you come in! The va’aki needs routine maintenance to counteract the erosion from wind, rain, and other environmental circumstances. We do this by mudslinging! Which is exactly as it sounds. We apply layers of mud to exposed surfaces to mitigate erosion. This is done by a team of dedicated volunteers known as the PGM Mudslingers. Join us in preserving the va’aki ! No experience required, just be sure to bring some water, a hat, your sunscreen, and your desire to play in the mud! If you would like to learn more or join the team, please email us at pks.PGM.Volunteers@Phoenix.gov .
