Recent analysis of more than 25,000 artifacts collected from a little-known cliff dwelling located north of Montezuma Castle National Monument provides a wealth of new information about the Sinagua culture of central Arizona. These materials include well-preserved, bows, arrows, other wooden artifacts, beautifully colored cotton textiles, and plant remains that are in such remarkable condition they look like they were left behind yesterday. Photographs of this rare collection of archaeological materials are included and what they tell us about the people who lived along the Verde River are discussed.

Amazing detail . . . enjoy!

... alone in distant woods or fields, in unpretending sproutlands or pastures tracked by rabbits, even in a bleak and, to most, cheerless day .... .  I suppose that this value, in my case, is equivalent to what others get by churchgoing & prayer.  Hank Thoreau, 1857

Very interesting. The bows and arrows are at about 21 mins.

Very interesting Mike. I only got enough time to watch part of it but really neat. I'd love to try plant some of those seeds. I'm amazed that they look that good yet. I can't believe that moisture or animals didn't get them. I also couldn't believe nobody opened that bag for all those years.
