Recent Archaeological Research in Southeast Utah by Brigham Young University

Brigham Young University has a long history of archaeological research in southeastern Utah, dating back to the late 1950s. Over the last ten years, research by BYU faculty and students has included excavations at two large sites (Alkali Ridge Site 13 and Coal Bed Village), a variety of site documentation projects, and reanalysis of old artifact collections and survey data. This talk summarizes recent research and what that research tells us about the dynamic history of ancestral Pueblo settlements in southeastern Utah.
