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​ No
Mudslinging at the Museumhttps://www.phoenix.gov/calendar/parks/4402Mudslinging at the MuseumPueblo Grande Museum, 4619 E Washington St, Phoenix, AZ 8503410/15/2022 3:00:00 PM10/15/2022 6:00:00 PMGP0|#5a6a607d-8eed-4a8d-826c-3328d59cefd0;L0|#05a6a607d-8eed-4a8d-826c-3328d59cefd0|Parks and Recreation;GTSet|#517b07ab-dd83-4937-994c-c703834583f1;GPP|#c91454cd-5b28-4d66-bc01-17d32298aa9b Come help us preserve history while having some fun! 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 . No
