More Southwest Archaeology Team Projects

Arizona Museum of Natural History

A number of team members are assisting in the exhibitions department of the museum on Mondays from 9:00 to 4:00. They have helped build the replications of the prehistory section including the pit house and compound villages as well as the representation of a mammoth kill site from southern Arizona. After assisting with the stabilization of the Spanish Colonial church of Guevavi, the first Jesuit church in southern Arizona established by Father Eusebio Kino, they donated their time and expertise to assist in replicating the site in the museum as it might have appeared before and after the church was abandoned. The volunteers continue to assist with the creation and maintenance of the exhibits throughout the museum.

Lab Analysis

The Southwest Archaeology Team maintains a state of the art lab in the basement of Arizona Museum of Natural History. Sessions are scheduled Wednesday evenings from 7:00 until 9:00. Tasks performed include analyzing artifacts from the various archaeology sites where we have worked, checking in artifacts coming in from field work, entering data on a computer for later analysis for reports, and rebagging and reboxing artifacts from past projects.
