On Nov 1, 2013, join Paul Taylor as he takes an in-depth look at solstice and equinox events at archaeological sites such as Land Hill. Taylor is a voluntary site researcher for the BLM St. George Field Office. He developed a passion for archaeological research as a youth as he observed his father, an archaeologist, during field studies throughout the Southwest and Mexico. Taylor has studied the solstices and equinox interactions at Land Hill for the past six years and has lectured on his findings dozens of times to students and faculty at Dixie State University.
The free lectures, which begin at noon and last one hour, are at the Interagency Information Center, 345 E. Riverside Drive, St. George, Utah. Admission is free, but space is limited. To get tickets, visit the Interagency Information Center or call 435-688-3200. The Brown Bag Lecture Series is sponsored by the BLM Arizona Strip District, BLM St. George Field Office, National Park Service, Dixie National Forest’s Pine Valley Ranger District, Dixie-Arizona Strip Interpretive Association (D/ASIA), and Southern Utah Conservation Lands Friends (SUNCLF).
