SALT LAKE CITY — Jerry Spangler, professional archaeologist and expert on Utah’s Nine Mile Canyon, will speak about a new book on the subject Thursday, Oct. 10, from 12:15-1:15 p.m., in the S.J. Quinney College of Law building, Room 106, at the University of Utah.
Spangler’s presentation, “Nine Mile Canyon: The Archaeological History of an American Treasure,” is named for his new book and traces the history of archaeological research in the canyon from the 1890s through the present.
Spangler’s lecture will focus on the earliest researchers and their race to find antiquities for the Utah exhibit at the Chicago World’s Fair. “A pretty colorful story within a story,” he said. He will also discuss the ongoing efforts to understand the archaeology of Nine Mile Canyon.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Lunch is provided or guests can bring their own “green bag” lunch. For lawyers, attendance serves as one hour of continuing legal education. For questions, contact Stegner Center special events coordinator Kayla Bernard at 801-585-3440.
