    Name: Studying and Interpreting Montezuma Castle's Architecture
    Date: March 19, 2019
    Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM MST
    Event Description:

    This is an Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Lecture

    National Park Service staff, Matt Guebard, Lucas Hoedl and Wendel Navenma, will talk about recent attempts to study the architecture at Montezuma Castle. This includes investigations of the building techniques and materials used to construct the cliff dwelling. Additionally, the presentation will discuss attempts to build a "replicate room" using local materials and traditional construction methods similar to those used at Montezuma Castle. By replicating these ancient building styles, the park has acquired valuable insight into the labor required to build a cliff dwelling and the potential environmental impact caused by collecting local building materials. This presentation will highlight how the in-depth study of ancient architecture can produce important information about the lives and experiences of past people. 

    This is a free lecture open to the public.
