We're kicking off a new #ThrowbackThursday series!
In September 1952, excavators from the @universityofutah ventured into San Juan County to survey a few abandoned ruins that laid within what was until recently Bears Ears National Monument.
The surveys of these areas during the latter part of 1952 and late spring of 1953 brought light to an area which appeared to be an archeological frontier between the San Juan Anasazi culture of the Southwest and the Fremont Pueblo culture of Utah north of the Colorado River.
Everything that was surveyed related back to the periods Pueblo I, II and III, approximately 1,300-700 years ago.
Stay tuned for next week's #TBT when we'll share more of what the expedition found.
