EAC's Discovery Park Campus continues anthropology lecture series

By Lori Dugan

THATCHER, AZ—EAC’s Discovery Park Campus, located at 1651 W. Discovery Park Blvd. in Safford, will continue its comprehensive series of free Southwest anthropology slide show lectures entitled Discover Anthropology with Petroglyphs and Pictographs on Saturday, September 15, 2007, from 6:30 - 8 p.m.

“Petroglyphs and Pictographs, part of a body of graphic symbols that many call rock art, are ubiquitous in the world,” explains Harry Swanson, Dean of EAC’s Discovery Park Campus. “These forms of expression bring us very close to the actual thought processes of ancient cultures and give us a compelling and personal glimpse into the existence of different and exotic life ways. In this lecture, I will review a few of the most common Southwestern expressions and comment about their use and meanings as described by Native American informants.”

The entire community is invited to attend the continuation of this comprehensive culture lecture series. For more information about the lecture series or about Discovery Park Campus, call 428-6260.
