About the Event

The Mystery Unfolds: Implications & Surprises of the Coronado Sites Discovery (Talk #2)

Presentation by Deni Seymour, PhD

This is second in a series of one-time only lectures on the new archaeological sites relating to the Vazquez de Coronado expedition in southern Arizona.

This presentation discusses many of the most important and surprising implications of the finds. These include discussion of a greater portion of the route/trail, the nature of interaction with Natives, and the region-wide relevance of the largest site, which seems to be a place that was actually named in the documents, along with implications for Cabeza de Vaca (1536) and Marcos de Niza (1539).

Snacks will be served. $15 per lecture. Children 6 and under are free.  A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs. B.Y.O.C. – (bring your own chair or sit at one of our picnic tables).  This lecture will take place outdoors in our large picnic area.   Admission to this lecture includes all day entrance into the park and the historic buildings.

There is a $3 per ticket cancellation fee if credit card payment is made prior to the lecture and a refund is needed. Call to RSVP (520) 398-2252 or RSVP here.   If you have additional questions, call or email us!

Future Date:   Saturday, April 2nd.
