The Archaeological Conservancy's

2020 Virtual Lecture Series

The Box-S Ruin: A Tale of Healing Decades of Site Destruction at an Ancestral Zuni Pueblo

Presented by | James B. Walker, Southwest Regional Director and Vice President of The Archaeological Conservancy

Thank you to everyone attended our first Virtual Lecture!  If you missed the event on August 26, you can watch the full lecture here.

Located adjacent to the Zuni Reservation in Western New Mexico, this 1100 room masonry pueblo was acquired by The Archaeological Conservancy for permanent preservation in 1999. Dating from AD 1260-1285, the pueblo is considered by the Zuni to be part of their ancestral homeland. The lecture will focus on a unique collaborative effort by the Conservancy and the people from Zuni Pueblo to repair the extensive looting damage at the site.

James B. Walker, a New Mexico native, has worked the for The Archaeological Conservancy for the past 39 years, currently serving as the Conservancy’s Southwest Regional Director. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from The University of New Mexico in Anthropology (BA) and Business Administration (MBA). He has had extensive experience and education in real estate and cultural resource management.

This lecture series is sponsored by The Archaeological Conservancy. It is free to members of the Conservancy and the general public.
