April 6, 2019 Meeting


Harvey Leake will present insights he's gleaned from research into his great grandfather, John Weatherill, and other ancestors concerning their years among the cliff dwellers and Navajos of the Colorado Plateau.  The presentation will be followed by an outing led by Brent Reed to Camp Reno and Bandelier Ruin (also called Moore Ranch House Ruin).  Camp Reno was a United States Army outpost established by the 1st Cavalry in Tonto Basin.  It was occupied from 1867 to 1870.   Bandelier Ruin has 2 roomblocks and a platform mound from a Salado occupation around AD 1300.  A later Yavapai Apache occupation left scattered wikiup rings.


Introduction

The Rim Country Chapter of AAS is located in Payson, AZ, at the base of

the Mogollon Rim.  Meetings generally include a guest speaker presenting

an archaeological related subject. Refreshments are served. An outing to an archaeology site is normally scheduled for the afternoon following the general meeting. The RCC, under the guidance of Archaeologist Scott Wood, is participating in the excavation of the local Goat Camp Prehistoric Ruins Site. The completion of the excavation project will likely take several years, (Note: participation in the excavation, after meeting outings, and field trips is open only to current members of the Arizona Archaeological Society.) 

Meeting Time and Place

Meetings are held the first Saturday of each month, (except July & August.) We meet at 10 a.m. in the Payson Public Library in the Rumsey Park Complex at 328 N McLane Rd in Payson.  Guests are always welcome.  Meeting Location Map
