Cornville Assn. to hear about local archeology

CORNVILLE -- The first 2013 meeting of the Cornville Community Association Wednesday, Jan. 9, will hear from Ken Zoll, Director of the Verde Valley Archeology Center.

Zoll is the president of the Verde Valley Chapter of the Arizona Archaeological Society and Treasurer of the Verde Valley Archaeology Center.

A researcher of ancient astronomical practices for the Coconino National Forest, Zoll has consulted on archaeoastronomy sites in other parts of Arizona. He authored Sinagua Sunwatchers: An Archaeoastronomy Survey of the Sacred Mountain Basin, a monograph that explains his discovery of a 1,000-year-old solar calendar.

His newest book, Understanding the Rock Art of Sedona, is an introduction to the rock art of the Sedona/Verde Valley area. All proceeds from the books sales go to Friends of the Forest and the Arizona Archaeological Society for cultural preservation.

Cornville Community Association meets at 7 p.m., the second Wednesday of each month (except during July and December) at Oak Creek School, 11490 Purple Sage Rd, Cornville. Meetings are free and open to the public. Contact the association via phone: (928) 639-1360; postal mail: PO Box 1452, Cornville; or e-mail:
