The Early Pueblo Occupation of the Dinetah Region

September 5, 2017


Tuesday, September 5, 2017 at 12:00 noon, free!

The traditional picture of early Pueblo history (pre-AD 900) has been broadly recreated by archaeological research in the Four Corners region. The early Pueblo history in the greater Dinetah region does not conform to this model in ways that are important for understanding the cultural diversity of modern Pueblo peoples. This bag lunch is background for the upcoming Friends of Archaeology field trip, set for October 6-8, to view Pueblo I and Navajo archaeology of the Dinetah region.

The Brown Bag talks will take place at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology at 12:00 noon on Tuesdays in the CNMA library. Seating is limited. Admission is free.

The Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road) is located off of Caja del Rio Road, across from Challenge New Mexico on the way to the Santa Fe Municipal Golf Course. Take 599 to South Meadows Road, continue through the traffic circle west along the Frontage Road to Caja del Rio Road. CNMA is on the left-hand side of the road and is the large building with white sail-like skylights on the roof.
