Phoenix, AZ – Test your technology skills at the 19th Annual Ancient Technology Day on March 9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Pueblo Grande Museum in Phoenix. Enjoy a hands-on experience, fun for the whole family, where visitors can try their hand at throwing an atlatl (spear), weaving their own cloth, and sample roasted agave slow-cooked the traditional way. Artists will be on hand to demonstrate how the Hohokam people used various technologies such as archery, pottery, shell jewelry, weaving and more!
