Archaeology Research Program: Session 1

September 12th-16th, 2022

Learn excavation techniques and work alongside our archaeologists, then help them to wash, identify and analyze ancient artifacts in our archaeology lab.

Program Description:

Crow Canyon is partnering with the Cortez Cultural Center to conduct an archaeological survey of the Hawkins Preserve, a 122-acre natural area located just south of Cortez, Colorado. The preserve includes numerous Pueblo I–Pueblo III period habitations that are part of the Mitchell Springs Group, one of the largest community centers in Southwest Colorado. In addition, there are several historic sites associated with Ute and Navajo peoples, as well as the earliest Euro-American settlers in the Cortez area. This non-dig program will benefit the Cultural Center by providing information on the history of the preserve, aiding interpretation of archaeology within the preserve, and by adding to our understanding of the Prehispanic and Historic period occupation of the Mesa Verde region.

The cost of the program is $400. Participants are required to provide their own housing and meals for the duration of the program.
