Feature Expedition

Archaeological Explorations in Glen Canyon 1959

Field notesNatural History Museum of Utah - Anthropology

From 1957-1962 the University of Utah archaeology staff and students (led by Dr. Jesse Jennings) were contracted by the National Park Service to document archaeological variation in Glen Canyon (Utah) prior to inundated by Lake Powell in 1963.

The 1959 expedition represents the third year of that project and include archaeological survey and excavations. These photologs link written descriptions to the photographs and are essential for preserving information about archaeology sites in Glen Canyon before they were lost. The transcription information will be an integral part of our associated records collection at the Natural History Museum of Utah and will be made accessible to researchers.
