Zion Canyon Field Institute's (ZCFI) Fern and J.L. Crawford Lecture Series
"A Place for Everything: The Organization of Activities in the Prehistoric World"
    by David Van Alfen (Archaeologist, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument)
Structures, like tools, are usually created with a specific purpose in mind, primarily
    the organization of activities. However, also much like tools, structures are often
    "repurposed" during their lifespan, indicating changes in activity organization
    that could have demographic, social, or religious reasons and implications.
    We will examine the changes in Virgin Anasazi structures and site organization
    over time in order to explore the implications of architectural change.
This lecture will be held at the Canyon Community Center, 126 Lion Boulevard, Springdale.
    It is free and open to the public.
