This is an Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month Lecture
Dr. Todd Bostwick will present "A New View on the Ancient Sinagua: Analysis of the Dyck Cliff Dwelling Collection."
Excavated between 1962 and 1972, the large quantity of archaeological materials recovered from the Dyck Cliff Dwelling, located northeast of Montezuma Castle, were kept in storage for more than 40 years until they were donated to the Verde Valley Archaeology Center in 2014. Detailed analysis of the well-preserved wooden artifacts, colorful textiles, diverse ceramics, and remarkable food remains has provided new information about the prehistoric cliff dwellers who lived in the Verde Valley.
Dr. Todd Bostwick is the Director of Archaeology for the Verde Valley Archaeology Center and Museum.
This is a free lecture open to the public.
