Arizona Project Archaeology Pithouse Shelter Guide

Arizona Project Archaeology (AzPA) is in the process of creating an Arizona Pithouse Shelter Guide for use in Arizona elementary schools. AzPA is committed to teaching scientific and historical inquiry, cultural understanding, and the importance of stewardship of Arizona’s rich archaeological resources. Arizona Project Archaeology provides students with a basic understanding of archaeology and inspires them to respect and protect our cultural heritage. 

“Investigating Shelter” guides students through a complete investigation of a southwest pithouse shelter using artifacts, maps, historic photographs or drawings and oral histories. The curriculum inspires students to respect and protect the rich array of cultural resources on public lands. The goal is to develop lifelong stewards on public lands. 

As soon as this Shelter Guide is completed you will find information on how to access it here.
