About Doug Gann, Preservation Archaeologist and Digital Media Specialist at Archaeology Southwest Doug grew up on Tucson’s northwest side, where he played in the adobe ruins of historic homesteads and wondered about the ancient artifacts he found on walks home from school. For the past 25 years, Doug has pursued and entwined his two passions, archaeology and computer technology. Most recently, Doug has developed CVR (Chronological Virtual Reality), a digital time machine that shares archaeological perspectives on the past in extraordinary ways. He will show you a Tucson—and a Southwest—you have never seen before.
