Thursday September 21, 2006: Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursdays” program: “The Cerro de Moctezuma Project: From a Mule to Unknown Architecture” with archaeologist Todd Pitezel, at Old Pueblo Archaeology Center, 5100 W. Ina Road Bldg. 8, in the Marana Town Limits, Arizona. 7:30 to 9 p.m Free. University of Arizona archaeologist Todd Pitezel will discuss his research on his archaeology dissertation work at Cerro de Moctezuma, “Moctezuma Hill,” the only northwestern Chihuahua, Mexico, village site that was situated on a hill between about A.D. 1200 and 1500. Todd has said this project “began as an offhand-suggested topic, evolved to a mule hauling equipment to the site, and now hovers with archaeological data waiting for exposition in dissertation form.” No reservations needed. 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org

Wednesday September 27-Sunday October 1, 2006: “Southeast Utah Ruins, Rock Art, and Rivers” fundraising tour with Dr. Stephen H. Buck, departing from Tucson International Airport Park & Save lot (near TIA entrance, SE corner of Tucson Blvd. & Corona Dr.). 7:30 a.m. Wednesday-6 p.m. Sunday. Fee $695 ($670 for Old Pueblo Archaeology Center and Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary members). On this multiday van tour we’ll stop at the historic Hubbell Trading Post near Ganado en route to our base at the quaint and rustic Recapture Lodge along the San Juan River in Bluff, Utah. Bluff (population 350) has about a dozen restaurants and probably boasts the highest per capita concentration of archaeologists, geologists, naturalists, writers, and artists of any small town in the country. The Recapture offers a cash continental breakfast each morning but has no telephones or televisions in the rooms, so bring your favorite Tony Hillerman mystery novel. Trip includes an unforgettable all-day, back-road tour to remote petroglyph sites, cliff dwellings, and some of the most awesome geology in the United States, plus visits to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Natural Bridges National Monument, the Muley Point overlook high above the San Juan River goosenecks, Newspaper Rock State Historical Monument, and museums in Blanding and Moab. On the return trip we’ll visit the spectacular Meteor Crater near Flagstaff. ADVANCE RESERVATIONS REQUIRED: 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org
