Mudslinging at Pueblo Grande Museum, Phoenix, AZ

Sponsored by Pueblo Grande Museum

AIA Society Event: Central Arizona (Phoenix)

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Location:
Pueblo Grande Museum
Phoenix, AZ
United States

Building upon last year's success, the Central Arizona Society of the AIA will partner with Pueblo Grande Museum (Phoenix, AZ) for National Archaeology Day and participate in the mudslinging project at the Museum. Mudslinging is not simply a political tool; it is a stabilization technique for earthen structures and has been employed for years at Pueblo Grande—the legendary site of a Native American platform mound.  In addition, for National Archaeology Day at the Pueblo Grande Museum there will be a simulated pit-house excavation for children.
