Archaeological and historic sites provide tangible evidence of a region’s past and of how cultures have changed through time. There are thousands of such sites in southern Arizona that most of the general public knows nothing about. In this presentation, archaeologist Al Dart provides an overview of southern Arizona archaeology and cultures, and shares information about many of these sites, including ones open for public visitation.
