Chasing Centuries at the Arizona History Museum
September 10 @ 4:00 pm–6:00 pm
Join author Ron Parker as he explores the depth and duration of human/agave co-evolution across the desert southwest, and discovers unusual agaves apparently associated with archaeological sites long since abandoned by residents of extinct ancient cultures. These agaves appear to be anthropogenic cultivars; living archaeological relics developed and planted by indigenous pre-Columbian Native Americans, and many are still growing exactly where they were planted hundreds of years ago.
Free with paid admission (visit the museum from 10 am – 4 pm)
Lecture Admission: $5.00
