The Goodman Point Archaeological Project: Glimpses of a Community Through Time

October 28 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Goodman Point Archaeological Project: Glimpses of a Community Through Time is presented by Grant Coffey, an archaeologist at the Crow Canyon Archeological Center. Grant Coffey is an archaeologist and the research database manager at the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Cortez, Colorado. He has done archaeological work in the northern Southwest for over twenty years, and he directed the second phase of Crow Canyon’s Goodman Point Archaeological Project. This presentation will provide an overview of this seven-year archaeological field project and will highlight essential findings that add to our understanding of ancestral Pueblo life in southwest Colorado.

Goodman Point was named for Indian Creek and Moab cowboy, Henry Calvin Goodman, who first ran cattle there before settling on Indian Creek and would later run sheep there with his brother-in-law, Moab’s first mayor, Harry Green. Goodman Point was the first piece of land in America preserved for its value in cultural resources when in 1889 it was removed from the lands that could be acquired through the Homestead and Desert Land Acts, and specifically set aside as an Archaeological Reserve between A.D. 1000 and 1280. Join us at 11 am and 2 pm for Coffey’s presentations.
