18th Annual Ancient Technology Day: Prehistoric & Historic



Test your technology skills at the 18th Annual Ancient Technology Day on March 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Pueblo Grande Museum in Phoenix. Enjoy a hands-on experience, fun for the whole family, where visitors can try their hand at throwing an atlatl (spear), weaving their own cloth, and sample roasted agave slow-cooked the traditional way, in an earthen oven. Artists will be on hand to demonstrate how the Hohokam people used various technologies such as flintknapping (making of arrowheads), pottery, shell jewelry, weaving and more! Experts in historic technologies will demonstrate skills from the Pioneer Days of Arizona such as cotton spinning and adobe brick making!

Ancient Technology Day: Prehistoric & Historic is recognized as both an official Arizona Scitech Festival event and an Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month event. In addition to hands-on demonstrations, families can enjoy free craft activities and games where they can practice their new ancient and historic technology skills. Also available throughout the day are free tours of the prehistoric platform mound, and artifact show-and-tell stations. Guests can also enjoy a guided tour of the Park of Four Waters, an area with the remains of prehistoric hohokam canals not regularly open to the public. Fry bread will also be available for purchase! 

All Ancient Technology Day activities and Museum admission are FREE for the day! Visit pueblogrande.com or call (602) 495-0901 for more information about this event.
