Description
The Coombs Site is an ancient village in Utah’s canyon country. Visitors will have a unique experience at Anasazi State Park which is believed to have been occupied from AD 1160 to 1235 by prehistoric groups. An interesting fact about the park is that it is considered to be on the border of the Ancestral Puebloan and Fremont cultures. Archaeological excavations at the site have revealed the “melting pot” of these cultures in the artifacts recovered from the site and which are on display in the museum. This became a state park in 1970. The name “Anasazi” is a Navajo word referring to ancient ones and is now generally accepted. It refers to the farmers who lived on the Colorado Plateau between AD 1 and 1300. The Ancestral Puebloans of this area are believed to be descendants of an Archaic Desert cultures who may have migrated from Mesoamerica Visitors can go to the museum collections, visit the Coombs site, enjoy an outdoor picnic, or enjoy camping and lodging facilities nearby.
