NEXT MEETING: Wednesday, June 19, 2024, 6:00PM: members and non-members are welcome to the GCAS monthly meeting at the Roundup Lodge in San Lorenzo (Mimbres Valley). We start at 6PM with a potluck - bring your own plates & utensils, and a dish for yourself or to share with the group. At about 6:30PM we will have a brief business meeting followed immediately by our featured speaker, GCAS president Marianne Smith, who will discuss Images in Mimbres Pottery - Plainware to Classic. Consider some of the assumptions people make when trying to interpret Mimbres pottery and explore similarities in modern imagery. In order to offer our members a safe and comfortable experience at our in-person meetings the GCAS follows CDC and New Mexico Department of Health guidelines for indoor gatherings including masking, distancing, and vaccinations. We recommend each attendee take the precautions they feel are appropriate for themselves.

NEXT FIELD TRIP: SATURDAY, June 1, 2024, 12:00PM noon-4:00PM, Gough Park in Silver City: join the fun as the GCAS shifts our usual "first Sunday of the month" field trip one day earlier to the first Saturday of June to celebrate the main event of the 2024 centennial of the Gila Wilderness. The US Forest Service Wilderness Ranger District is hosting this event to commemorate the vital partnerships throughout the community that have contributed to the preservation of the Gila Wilderness over the past century. The GCAS is one among many such community organizations that will have a booth in Gough Park to showcase how people working together have preserved the world's first designated wilderness - a wilderness in our own back yard. Find out about this and more centennial events here.

Photo Goodness

124 - maybe-shaman  detail. See pic 17 Cache in the cliff - photo by K.MeredithSome minor dusting and cleaning was in order for the photo archives on our GCAS website.

The Gallery page: We've added to the scrolling gallery a couple dozen more photos of GCAS field trips, excavations, and special events. You can enjoy all 58 of them in two different ways: (1) use the arrows on the narrow scroll bar just underneath the string of photos to go back and forth looking at the photos in smaller size. Hovering your cursor over each photo will reveal a short caption; or (2) click on any photo to open it to full-screen size, then hover your cursor over the right-hand or left-hand portion of the photo to reveal a large white triangle/arrow that will take you to the next (or previous) photo in the lineup. Click the tiny black "X" in the far upper right corner of any enlarged photo to return to the Gallery page.

Photo Albums: We included more photos to each of our 7 existing albums. Thanks go to all our GCAS members who have generously contributed their photos of area events, GCAS field trips, and meetings. Please continue! And most recently...

...We created a new photo album entitled "Independent Study." This is where GCAS members are invited to contribute photos from their own travels into archaeology, history, and ecology in the US Southwest and further afield. This photo sharing is especially important during these times when official GCAS field trips are curtailed and the membership is thirsty for exploration. We would love everyone to share photos of where they've been and what they've seen, whether it has been upon a recent trip or one from the past. Include some explanatory text or photo captions and we can turn it into a blog post as well.

You can visit each and every one of the GCAS photo albums by clicking on "Gallery" at the top of the Home page and then following any of the links appearing below the photos in the scrolling gallery. Have fun, now.
