DFC-AAS: March 11 – Andy Seagle

Andy Seagle presents, Tim’s Cave: The Discovery and The Story.  College professor and photographer Andy Seagle shares an event that testifies to the deep connections of the human experience.  As his older brother Tim (an archaeologist) was dying, a defining event in both their lives was beginning. Andy's later discovery of Tim's Cave in the Sedona area gives back to the study of the Colorado Plateau, as well as mirrors the love and shared experiences of these two brothers that is still present today.  The events include unique archaeological discoveries, an encounter with “pot hunter” activity, posthumous reunion of friendship with a highly respected lead archaeologist in the Coconino County National Forest Service (Peter Pilles), and a birthday present that began an adventure creating an improbable cascade of Sinagua archaeological serendipity from a 1991 helicopter flight.  Family, friendship, community, and fate came together in an amazing tale developed around prehistoric people’s evidence found in Arizona leading to Tim's Cave discovery, recognition, and subsequent crime law enforcement investigations!

Andy Seagle was born (1959) and raised in Tucson, AZ.  He currently teaches in the Music Department at Mesa Community College, where he helped start the Audio Production Degree program over 28 years ago.  Andy is a recording engineer and recorded artists such as Paul McCartney, Johnny Cash, Lyle Lovett, and the Phoenix Symphony.  Andy was an avid hiker most of his life from his early archaeological adventures with his brother Tim with a deep love for everything Arizona.
