You can help with the process of curating artifacts.

The estimated annual cost of curation is more than $80,000! You can help us manage this expense by contributing to our Back-A-Box project. When you contribute, your name (or the name of someone you'd like to honor) goes on the box you sponsor.

 

 

Why is curation important?

jk 2012 lab staff jamie01Permanent curation is the process of sending our prepared and packaged artifacts to the Canyons of the Ancients Visitor Center and Museum* to be properly stored and maintained for years to come. Curating these artifacts allows our work to be available to archaeologists, researchers, American Indian communities, and others for years to come. This curation gives long-lasting meaning to our research and discoveries.

* Formerly The Anasazi Heritage Center

During a typical field season, thousands of artifacts and samples come into Crow Canyon's lab. The story of the past begins to come together only when these artifacts and samples are carefully processed and studied--and then boxed for curation!
