  • Because of the wonderful scholars and other experts who we meet along the way.  And because the trips are so well organized and carefully planned.  If something "happens," the staff will always save the day, and it may turn out to be even better.

  • I'm pleased with every one of the trips I've taken over the 27 years.  Each one has been different in many ways and yet the same in their professionalism and attention to detail.

  • The personal touches added to this trip made it even more special. The knowledge I gained plus the interaction with like-minded participants made the trip a memorable experience. I'm still trying to process it all!

  • Excellent scholars, small groups, topics other tour companies rarely offer, almost always very congenial and considerate other participants, and well-organized trips which operate smoothly.

  • The trips are very well organized, provide a variety of experiences, and provide new knowledge that changes one perspective on the larger world.

  • You must travel with Crow Canyon just once and once you have, you will know why you want to keep coming back. I know exactly what to expect and it never disappoints! In fact, this trip was over and beyond anything I could have even imagined. 

  • They are all unique opportunities to visit a place and discover the human history with knowledgeable scholars and fellow travelers who share an interest in learning about the past. 



Our Research Themes

Our projects address a wide variety of interrelated issues relevant not only to archaeologists but to educators, policy makers, advocacy groups, and Indigenous peoples.

Humans and the Environment

We study how humans responded to environmental change in the past and the implications for environmental policy.

Multivocal Histories

We promote respect for different cultures and preserve traditional knowledge, past and present.

Cultural and Scientific Literacy

As a social science with deep roots in STEM, archaeology helps students become critical thinkers and lifelong learners.
