The 1998 Rock Art Recording Field School will be held at Anderson Pass on
the Coconino National Forest. Anderson Pass is located at about 6,500 ft.
above sea level, 24 miles southeast of Flagstaff and 5 miles north of
Kinnickinick Lake.  Anderson Pass is characterized by rugged mountainous
terrain, with grassy meadow areas scattered throughout a ponderosa pine and
pinyon-juniper forest.

The rock art of The Anderson Pass area is varied and extensive.  At this
time five separate rock art sites are known and undoubtedly many more will
be discovered during the field school activities. There are indications
that  early period rock art (Aychaic?), as well as late period rock art
(Sinagua) occurs in the area.

Anderson Pass is very interesting from an archaeological perspective
because many interesting sites occur in the area, including pit house
villages, late pueblos, fortified hill tops or forts, as well as rock art
