The University of Arizona’s School of Anthropology, Desert Archaeology, Inc., the Arizona State Museum, and the Arizona Humanities Council will hold two free community open houses at University Indian Ruin, a Hohokam village on Tucson’s northeast side on March 2 and 16, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. A subsequent panel discussion and Q & A session with experts will take place on March 30, 2013, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in the Udall Park Community Center. Site tours will occur at 9:30, 10:30, and 11:30 a.m. on March 2 and 16, 2013. University Indian Ruin is located in east Tucson just off Tanque Verde Rd. between Grant/Kolb Rd. and Sabino Canyon Rd., at 2799 N. Indian Ruins Rd. To access the site, turn north from Tanque Verde onto N. Indian Ruins Rd. (in the Indian Ridge Estates neighborhood), and follow event signs; event personnel will meet guests and direct them to parking areas. Because parking is limited, carpooling is encouraged. The site covers 13 acres, and the tours will involve moderate walking over uneven ground. Sunscreen and hats are encouraged, as is a personal supply of water, although water will also be available at the site. The Udall Park Community Center, the site of the March 30 presentation, is located at 7200 E. Tanque Verde Rd, Tucson, AZ.
