"Interpreting Archeological Resources" Interdisciplinary Employee Training.  An archaeologist at Mesa Verde National Park explains the interpretation of an ancient Pueblo ruin during a SEAC-coordinated employee training class. The class is based on a shared competency employee training module developed by SEAC staff in association with the Stephen T. Mather Training Center and a SEAC-led interdisciplinary and interagency task group. Over 100 interpreters and archeologists have been trained. The training builds interdisciplinary communication skills, empathizes a team approach to heritage interpretation, and stresses respect for multiple perspectives.
