Wilson MS Teacher Accepted to Summer Archaeology Workshop

John Daly will take part in the workshop at Mesa Verde National Park.

John S. Daly has been selected to participate in a week-long summer workshop for educators at the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Cortez, Colo. Mr. Daly teaches 6th and 7th grade special education at Wilson Middle School. He was one of more than 300 teachers from across the United States who applied for 80 scholar positions in two sessions of the workshop, Mesa Verde National Park: Convergences and Crossroads in the American Southwest.

Acceptance includes a stipend that will help pay his expenses to attend. The workshop is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of its Landmarks of American History and Culture program, designed to present the best available scholarship on a specific landmark or related cluster of landmarks.

Participants will work with educators, archaeologists, and American Indian scholars to learn about archaeology, history, and culture at Mesa Verde National Park, an archaeological and historical landmark that is one of the world’s greatest archaeological preserves. They will also take part in Crow Canyon’s current excavation of a Basketmaker III archaeological site that was inhabited by the ancestral Pueblo Indians during a time that included rapid population growth and change.

The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to understanding and teaching the rich history of the ancestral Pueblo Indians who inhabited the canyons and mesas of the Mesa Verde region more than 700 years ago.
