From Krakow to Castle Rock
We are pleased to announce a visiting exhibit at the Edge of the Cedars: “From Krakow to Castle Rock” will hang until the end of 2020. The exhibit consists primarily of 30+ panels, all of which contain handsome images of Southwestern landscapes. The exhibit focuses on an archaeological project in neighboring southwestern Colorado by the Institute of Archaeology at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. Under the direction of Dr. Radoslaw Palonka, students from Krakow conducted survey, detailed architectural documentation, photogrammetric documentation, remote sensing investigations, and limited excavations at archaeological sites on lands administered by the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument (CANM) (BLM, Colorado). The exhibit is a wonderful dive into the deep history of an Ancestral Puebloan community of the Mesa Verde tradition, particularly during (but not exclusive to) the AD 1200s. We’re grateful to Dr. Palonka and Jagiellonian University for the loan of the panels, and to the staff at the CANM Visitor Center in Dolores, CO for their assistance.
