2018 Fieldschool Cottonwood Spring Pueblo


This summer New Mexico State University‚Äôs Anthropology Department will continue its archaeological research field school at Cottonwood Spring Pueblo on the western flanks of the San Andres Mountains just north of Las Cruces, NM. This 14th century village dwarfs most other El Paso phase sites (A.D. 1300-1450). Students live in town and commute to the site Monday through Thursday. We devote Fridays to guest lectures and cleaning, sorting, typing and cataloging artifacts in the lab on campus. We will also be taking an extended field trip to Chaco Canyon National Historical Park in mid June. Students will gain experience in excavation, mapping, and laboratory analysis. The cost is 6 credits of tuition plus an $800 course fee. The fieldschool lasts from May 23-June 29. Applications are due April 20, 2018. Contact William Walker at for applications and questions.
