Preservation Archaeology in Southwest New Mexico 2015


Join Archaeology Southwest this summer for the 2015 season of our Preservation Archaeology Field School.  Students will earn 7 hours of undergraduate or graduate credit through the University of Arizona while investigating how ancient communities formed during an era of migration and social change. Our team will excavate at the 14th-century Dinwiddie site in beautiful southwest New Mexico. We will also record sites on survey, analyze what we find in the lab, and learn to make and use ancient tools while building a full-scale replica of a Cliff phase adobe room.  Field trips to archaeological sites, visits to contemporary Native American communities, and public outreach events in our project area emphasize communication with diverse audiences and reinforce the principles of Preservation Archaeology as we focus on recovering maximum information with limited impacts on the archaeological record. 

Qualifying students will receive a stipend through the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates program to assist with field school costs.  Applications are due March 6; for more information, see or contact Karen Schollmeyer at
