Back by popular demand for his third visit to Mesa Public Library, Chuck Hannaford, project director for the Museum of New Mexico’s Office of Archaeological Studies, returns with the award winning hands-on archaeology outreach program so fitting for this year’s summer reading theme of “Dig In to Reading!”
Hannaford will set up his large array of archaeological artifacts from early New Mexico history, all touchable, for visitors to explore in the Mesa Public Library lobby. Everything from arrow points to atlatls, grinding stones to examples of potsherds, Hannaford is full of expert and first hand information about the discoveries and practice of archaeology for anyone who would like to drop by the lobby between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. He will also give a slide show and talk at 7 p.m., upstairs in the rotunda.
Experience how Native Americans made and used yucca cordage, stayed warm with turkey-feather blankets, and how the atlatl was used by ancient hunters.
This is also an opportunity to bring in artifacts from the past and have an archaeologist help with their identification and use.
Hannaford has a bachelor of arts from the University of New Mexico.
