Leam how to record petroglyphs and pictographs. Assist in recording sites that are rapidly being destroyed by natural and human forces. Knowledge relating to all aspects of rock art will be gained from lectures and discussions by experts in the field. Participate in a fun and rewarding experience. The 1999 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. In 1998, 11 petroglyph sites were recorded and many more were found by our survey teams. There are indications that early period rock art (Archaic?), 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, as well as rock art sites. The Field School program is designed to fulfill most of the requirements for the AAS Certification Program. Each intensely filled day will start early with field work. Afternoons will be devoted to completing paper work and some workshops. Lectures will occupy evenings. Work at Anderson Pass is very strenuous. Long hikes, boulder scrambling and perching on precarious precipices will be required. Biting bugs and heavy winds are common. Each and every student must bring a 35 mm camera and a regulation compass. Film will be supplied. A primitive forest camp will be set up where all participants must stay. Individuals provide their own food, camping equipment and other personal items. Membership in the Arizona Archaeological Society is required.
