Archaeologist Dr. Emily Brown realized studying musical instruments can lead to revealing facts about the music of that era. Which led her to researching and writing this piece for Park Science.

“In the course of my research in nine museums, I studied more than 1,250 musical objects from the Four Corners area of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah, primarily from sites within 17 national parks, including Chaco Culture National Historical Park, Aztec Ruins National Monument, Bandelier National Monument, Pecos National Historical Park, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, and Wupatki National Monument.”
