How to Visit Sites Like an Archaeologist
Contact Name: Utah Public Archaeology Network
Join us ***online only*** as we celebrate Nine Mile Canyon Archaeology!
If you’ve ever hiked with an archaeologist, you may notice that they see things a little differently! The shallowest dip in the ground becomes an ancient pithouse, a cluster of chipped stone debris becomes a workshop, and all around the landscape becomes filled again with people and their daily lives. Archaeologists are trained to look closely at sites to see small details and use them to reconstruct the patterns of past lives. There’s no magic to it – and you can learn it too! In this presentation Elizabeth Hora uses sites in Nine Mile Canyon to show you how to look at the world around you in new ways to see traces of the past.
