It’s been an amazing journey for humankind at Grand Canyon. From the nomadic, large spear hunters of 10,000 B.C. to today’s camera phone wielding visitors, the constant has always been the yawning chasm that continues to attract subsequent generations.
The National Park Service will be highlighting a good chunk of this legacy during a March 19, Archaeology Day in Grand Canyon Village. Throughout the day, scientists and researchers will be sharing the many innovative ways that the canyon’s earliest inhabitants carved out a meager living in this forbidding landscape, and pondering what these lessons might mean for us today.
This event is free to the public, and everyone form archaeology buffs to laymen will walk away with a better understanding of our forebears and their amazing accomplishments.
