NEXT MEETING: Wednesday, December 15, 2021, online via Zoom, it's the GCAS special holiday meeting starting at the very special time of 6:00 PM. It may not be a “party” in our group's traditional sense, but we anticipate having a slideshow of archaeological images of solstice markers, followed by a slideshow of the AMAZING progress on our new Library and Workspace/Lab in the Wood House at the Mimbres Culture Heritage Site, and a reading of Marilyn Markel's annual poem wrapping up the year behind us. If any member has anything they wish to contribute to the fun, be it slideshows, games, announcements, or any etc., please contact Kyle ASAP at . The more the merrier!

NEXT FIELD TRIP = TBA - watch this space for details as they develop.

Plan Soon for the 2019 Southwest Kiln Conference

2017 swkc multi firingsThe 2019 Southwest Kiln Conference is set for the weekend of October 4 through October 6 in Globe, Arizona. This event emphasizes archaeological research and hands-on techniques in the fields of prehistoric pottery replication and experimental archaeology. It is open to the public and attendance is free.

2018 swkc 09-28 fired potsThe October 2019 schedule offers something for all levels of interest and skill. Archaeological papers will be presented, demonstrations of prehistoric pottery technology will be performed outdoors, and special outdoor pottery firings (above-ground and in trench) are scheduled in the Timber Camp campground area of the Tonto National Forest. A group camp site has also been reserved at Timber Camp so that exchange of ideas can continue unimpeded. The conference closes on Sunday, October 6, with a field trip to Kinishba Ruins.
