Human Evolution and Social Change
Location: Deer Valley Rock Art Center, 3711 W. Deer Valley Road

As a precursor of the upcoming exhibit, City Life: Experiencing the World of Teotihuacan, the ASU Museum of Anthropology and ceramics students at Mesa Community College are recreating simple, utilitarian ceramic vessels similar to those used by ancient Mesoamericans nearly 1,200 years ago. 
 
The vessels will be “fired’ in a wood-fueled desert pit at ASU’s Deer Valley Rock Art Center, 3711 West Deer Valley Road. The public is invited to be a part of this experience.
 
Call for ”Sunset Tour” reservations and learn about ceramic firing techniques starting at 5:30 p.m.
 
General admission charges apply. Adults $7, seniors $4, children $3 and free admission for children 5 and younger.
 
The reproduction pieces fired in the pit will be featured in the upcoming ASU Museum of Anthropology exhibit City Life: Experiencing the World of Teotihuacan, along with original Teotihuacan ceramics. The exhibit will be open to the public on Friday, October 11, 2013. Museum admission is always free.
