These 45-minute lunch time lectures are free and open to the public, and will explore the science of pottery production and archaeological research done on pottery sherds to reconstruct history and form new ideas on prehistoric cultures and traditions. This lecture series is sponsored in part by the Phoenix Chapter of the Arizona Archaeology Society, the Arizona Archaeological Council, and the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary.February 23, 2018 Lecture Title The Origins of Pottery in Arizona Speaker Chris Garraty, Assistant Director of Cultural Resources at Logan Simpson Description The archaeological study of ceramic fragments provides a wealth of information about the lives of ancient people in Arizona. From customs, technologies, and food preferences, to artisan crafting practices, gender roles, and patterns of exchange, to views of religion, cosmologies, and many other important topics. Garraty discusses the results from recent archaeological studies of ceramic fragments that highlight the origins of pottery and ceramic technology in Arizona. Simple pots were made as early as 2100 B.C. by mobile hunter-gatherers in the Tucson Basin, but these early vessels appear to have been used sparingly and for ritual purposes. Pottery used for everyday household tasks, such as cooking and serving food, first developed around 350 B.C. in the Queen Creek area, east of Phoenix. Based on analyses of these early pottery shapes, surface treatment, and fatty acid residues, Garraty argues that changing economic conditions at the household level encouraged technological innovation and greater reliance on utilitarian pottery in the Queen Creek area. Over time, from about 350 B.C. to A.D. 400, use of domestic pottery became more popular and accommodated an increasing number of household functions, especially as ancient people increasingly relied on farming and started living in permanent settlements. Additional study of early pottery use in Arizona in the future will be vital for better understanding the social and economic conditions for technological innovation and change in the ancient past.

Join Dr. Deni Seymour to find the answers in her presentation The Earliest Apache in Arizona Evidence of Arguments on March 7, 2018 at 630 p.m. at Pueblo Grande Museum in Phoenix. Research provides evidence of ancestral Apaches in the southern Southwest as early as A.D. 1300. Evidence comes from chronometric dates obtained from storage features (covered with grass or leaves), on Apache pottery, and from roasting pits, all in direct association with other types of Apache material culture. A continuous sequence of use from the A.D. 1300s through the late 1700s provides new insights into a western route into this region and the presence of the earliest ancestral Apache three centuries earlier than previously thought, even in areas where Coronado did not see them. Dr. Seymour is an internationally recognized authority on protohistoric, Native American, and Spanish colonial archaeology and ethno-history. For 30 years, she has studied the Apache, Sobaipuri O'odham, and lesser-known mobile groups. She has excavated Spanish presidios, numerous Kino-period missions, and several indigenous sites. She works with indigenous groups, tackles the Coronado and Niza expeditions, and is reworking the history of the pre-Spanish and colonial period of the Southwest. This lecture is free and open to the public, provided through the support of Arizona Humanities.

Carlos Nakai Quartet, which recently released its fifth album, What Lies Beyond, with bassist Johnny Walker.After the presentation, guests can meet the artists, take pictures with them, and purchase merchandise.
