Archaeological Perishables Field Trip via Zoom – For AAHS Members Only

August 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm MST

Join other AAHS members for a virtual field trip through some of the Arizona State Museum’s (ASM) oldest, most fragile, and most important collections. This is an opportunity for AAHS members to experience some of the archaeological perishables curated at ASM, rarely seen by the public.  The perishables highlighted are part of the 35,000 items of basketry and woven fiber from around the U.S. Southwest and northwest Mexico, dating from about 7,000 years ago to today, that are cared for at ASM.  
 
Dr. Nancy Odegaard, conservator, professor, and head of preservation and Dr. Patrick Lyons, archaeologist, associate professor and ASM Director will co-lead this field trip through a combination of pre-recorded video and live questions and answers.  You will see artifacts from Broken Flute Cave, Point of Pines Pueblo, McEuen Cave, and other important sites. 
 
There is no limit to the number of current AAHS members who can participate in this field trip.  However, you must pre-register.
