Class offered on famous rock art
The Lower Pecos River region of southwest Texas is widely known for its
world-class pictographs and prehistoric archeological remains spanning more
than 11,000 years of human prehistory. On March 22-23, Joseph Labadie will
present a field seminar entitled, "Rock Art and Archeology of Lower Pecos,"
as part of the Big Bend Seminars program.
This seminar will provide a basic understanding of the material culture
of the prehistoric inhabitants of the Lower Pecos River region.
The seminar will include detailed discussions on the four distinct prehistoric
rock art styles and two historic periods of Native American pictographs
in the region. On day one participants will see several slide and video
programs and participate in discussions.
The seminar is conducted as part of the Big Bend Seminars program sponsored
by the Big Bend Natural History Association. Each year experts in various
fields meet with small groups to offer in-depth knowledge and insight. Cost
for the seminar is $100 per person or $90 for members of the Big Bend Natural
