Preservation Archaeology in Southwest New Mexico


Archaeology Southwest and the University of Arizona School of Anthropology announce our fourth Preservation Archaeology Field School in southwestern New Mexico.  Up to twelve undergraduate students will be supported by the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.  Undergraduate and graduate students will learn excavation, survey, and analysis methods in a beautiful and archaeologically rich part of the American Southwest. Our innovative curriculum highlights Preservation Archaeology, which integrates research, education, and preservation within a community-based framework.  Students will actively participate in data collection contributing to Archaeology Southwest’s long term study of demographic change, migration, and community organization and land use in the U.S. Southwest during the late precontact period (ca. A.D. 1200-1500).  This field school will train future generations of archaeologists in ethically responsible and scientifically rigorous field and research methods while answering compelling questions about our shared past.

To be eligible for the REU program, students must be undergraduates enrolled in a degree program and citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. Graduate students and foreign students will be considered for admission to the field school, but are not eligible for financial support through the REU program.  See project website for details and eligibility information,  You may also contact Dr. Karen Schollmeyer at
