National Parks Store: Archaeology without Borders—How Philanthropy in the Southwest Erased International Boundaries

In the 1930s, the Fulton family came to Texas Canyon in southeast Arizona. As the founders of the Amerind Foundation and Museum, the Fultons forever changed our understanding of ancient Mexico. Their support of archaeological expeditions south as well as north of the US-Mexico border led to new research perspectives on how ancient peoples lived in the Chihuahuan Desert.

Talks at 12 noon and 2 PM.
