The Bureau of Land Management’s Anasazi Heritage Center near Dolores, Colo., houses collections from one of North America’s most important archaeological regions: the Four Corners area. The public is invited to explore behind-the-scenes, for an intimate glimpse into the curated collection in the depths of the museum’s basement. “When a person visits a museum, they only see a fraction of the items housed in the confines of the building,” said Bridget Ambler, Anasazi Heritage Center Curator. “We are excited to offer the public an opportunity to see the wide array of objects and archives that represent 12,000 years of deep history in the American Southwest and, in particular, Canyons of the Ancients National Monument.” The weekly “Behind-the-Scenes” tours are on Thursdays at 2 p.m. from May 2, 2013, through October 31, 2013. Participants should reserve a place in advance by calling (970) 882-5600, as space is limited. - Southwest Archaeology Today
