Please join The Archaeological Conservancy on June 29, 2023 at 6pm MDT for a Virtual Lecture on Zoom Webinars featuring April M. Brown, our new Southwest Regional Director.
Ms. Brown will present a talk on one of our recently acquired New Mexico preserves, LA 580 in Tijeras Canyon. This significant site is located on the eastern edge of Albuquerque and contains the remains of prehistoric structures that indicate a Pueblo occupation dating between 1200 and 1320 AD, as well as historic features.
In the 1970s, extensive excavations occurred because of road construction and many sites in Tijeras were destroyed. While little is known specifically about LA 580, it was part of a larger Pueblo community that spanned throughout the area. This important multi-component site is still intact and holds great research potential. Ms. Brown will discuss the history of this archaeologically rich region and explain the Conservancy’s acquisition and preservation process.
