Online Webinar


This event is brought to you by the Bureau of Land Management, Monticello Field Office and Bears Ears National Monument in partnership with Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum. 


This presentation considers ornaments and nonlocal items from two great house sites in Utah. These “preciousities” reflect connectivity with the wider world during the fluorescence of the Chaco Phenomenon in the 11th, 12th, and early 13th centuries into the Mesa Verde region. A comparison is effected between the preciousity assemblages of the two sites to consider possible differences and similarities between Bluff and Edge of the Cedars in long-distance relationships with other parts of the Pueblo social world and beyond.


The webinar is suitable for lifelong learners from high school students to adults.  The lesson is free.
