May 25 Free Lecture Series: Steve Simms -
Dating Barrier Canyon Rock Art at the Great Gallery, Canyonlands National Park: Later Than We Thought and Implications for the Ancient History of Utah- Rock art compels interest from both researchers & a broader public, inspiring many hypotheses about its cultural origin & meaning, but it is notoriously difficult to date numerically. Barrier Canyon-style (BCS) pictographs of the Colorado Plateau are among the most debated examples. This presentation summarizes the geological dating, & targets the human behavioral context in which the Great Gallery was produced. Our dating suggests that Barrier Canyon Style rock art was an artistic tradition that spanned cultures and arose out of a time of fundamental change in the lives of Utah’s ancient inhabitants. 6pm at the Moab Information Center, corner of Center & Main Streets. These lectures are sponsored by Canyonlands Natural History Association & the Museum of Moab.
