Taos Archaeological Society's Monthly Meeting/Lecture

  • 09 Sep 2008
  • 7:00 PM - 8:29 PM
  • Navajo Room of the Kachina Lodge, Taos


Date: Tuesday, September 9th, 7PM


Subject:  Calendars in Stone

Speaker:  Ron Barber

Location/Time:  Navajo Room of the Kachina Lodge


Hundreds of calendars exist around the southwest that are located near old inhabited sites.  These calendars are made of specific glyphs that align with
unique shadows that are used to measure the time of the year, including winter and summer solstice, equinoxes and many other dates. 

Many calendar sites are also covered with additional glyphs whose functions have yet to be deciphered.  The research started on the Pajarito Plateau, then spread up and down the Rio Grande and into Arizona.  Ron has recorded glyphs as far south as the Sierra Madres in Mexico and as far north as the Columbia River Gorge in Washington.


Please join other TAS members and our speaker for dinner prior to the meeting at the Hopi Dinning Room, at the Kachina Lodge, 413 Paseo Del Pueblo Norte, at 5:00 PM.
