Jun 29 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
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.

Explore the vast cultural system of Chaco Canyon and the extensive network of outlying communities that developed in northwestern New Mexico and southwestern Colorado from A.D. 800 to 1130. We’ll visit Pueblo Bonito and other spectacular great houses in Chaco Canyon as well as the great kiva at Casa Rinconada. We’ll also have the unique opportunity to visit many of the most important outlying communities that are integral parts of the entire Chacoan complex still being uncovered by researchers. Scholars are still struggling to understand how this vast system developed and operated, and why it suddenly collapsed in about A.D. 1130. To complete the experience, we will spend two memorable nights camping in Chaco Canyon. Some of the leading Chaco experts will join us.
