The Elden Pueblo Project is a cooperative endeavor between the Coconino National Forest, the Arizona Natural History Association, and the Arizona Archaeological Society to provide educational opportunities in archaeology. Elden Pueblo is a 60-80 room pueblo of the prehistoric Sinagua culture and a Hopi ancestral site. The site of Elden Pueblo is open to the public and is located one mile north of the Flagstaff Mall on U.S. Highway 89.
The following archaeological programs provide hands-on mapping, excavation, laboratory, and analytical experiences for participants to learn about and become involved in the science of archaeology under professional supervision. Through these personal experiences, participants are made aware of archaeological concepts, values, laws, and practices.
Join us in our quest to learn about the past and present Pueblo cultures by investigating the clues people left behind.
