Description

As part of the Southern Nevada Archeology Speaker Series sponsored by the Southern Nevada Agency Partnership Cultural Resources Team, archaeologist Nathan Harper will speak at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas on March 3rd at 2 pm.

Under the sidewalks and streets of Las Vegas is a history locked in pipes and reservoirs. From the bubbling springs we have evidence of the earliest history of the Valley. Hear about the latest archaeological and preservation work at the Springs Preserve, including the identification, excavation, and restoration of a segment of the first main line redwood pipe. Preservation work for the Springs Preserve water well derricks and the 1920s Clark Street Pump Station will also be highlighted.

Nathan Harper is the Preserve Archaeologist at the Springs Preserve where he works to protect the unique history of Las Vegas. Nathan holds a BA and MA from Wichita State University. His field work has taken him to Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, Jordan, and Mexico.

Admission to the speaker series is free with museum or Springs Preserve membership, or with paid general admission.
