Class Conflict at the Ludlow Massacre Site, Southeastern Colorado, Presented by Dr. Dean Saitta- University of Denver

Sponsored by SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park

On the morning of April 20, 1914, Colorado National Guard troops opened fire on a tent colony of 1,200 striking coal miners at Ludlow, Colorado.  The troops continued shooting until late afternoon, then swept through the camp looting it and setting it aflame.  When the smoke cleared twenty of the camps inhabitants were dead including two women and eleven children.   The “Ludlow Massacre” was the most important event of the 1913-1914 Colorado Coal Field War.  However, most Americans know nothing about it.  This talk describes the first-ever excavations of the Ludlow Tent Colony and what we’ve learned from them.  It also discusses our involvement in winning Ludlow’s 2009 designation as a National Historical Landmark.  This watershed development testifies to what can happen when historians, archaeologists, and citizens make common cause to commemorate events that are often neglected by official American history.

Tombs of the Nobles: A Symposium & Lunch

Sponsored by The Toledo Museum of Art & the AIA Toledo Society

AIA Society Event: Toledo

Saturday, October 22, 2011 - 11:00am - 4:00pm

Location:

2445 Monroe Street
Toledo, OH 43620
United States

The Tombs of the Nobles are the burial places of some of the powerful courtiers and persons of the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes (modern Luxor). Located on the west bank of the Nile, near the temples of the deified kings, there are at least 415 catalogued tombs. Thanks to almost 200 years of archaeological investigation, these tombs have told us much about the people who ruled the powerful Egyptian empire and about the lives of artists, merchants, sailors, soldiers, and farmers who were their contemporaries. Three archaeologists will share stories, images, and observations from their current excavations and research. This event will provide context and up-to-date information to Toledo Museum of Art's ongoing exhibition "The Egypt Experience: Secrets of the Tomb."

Lectures are free and open to the public. Banquet cost is $30 for members, $35 for nonmembers; seating is limited. Purchase tickets by calling 419-255-8000 ext. 7432.
