Online Via Zoom: Our November 18, 2020, Featured Speaker, Margaret Berrier

MarglyphWednesday, November 18, 2020, 7:00 PM: GCAS general meeting via Zoom. No business meeting, which means we will begin by welcoming our Featured Speaker, archaeologist Margaret Berrier, who will share with our group "Pisciform Iconography of the Jornada Mogollon," also known as, "Let's Look at Fish: Pisciforms in the Jornada Mogollon Region of Southern New Mexico, Northern Mexico, and West Texas." Margaret points out,

"Numerous examples of fish are depicted on ceramics of the Southwest's ancient Mimbres Culture. These are well illustrated in publications and the Mimbres Pottery Image Digital Database (MimPIDD). However, no significant catalog or publication exists for the Southwest's Jornada Mogollon culture that was partly contemporaneous with the Mimbres. This presentation will include examples of pisciform iconography (fish forms) and their distribution in the Jornada Mogollon area. It also summarizes ethnographic accounts of fish use and interpretation of fish iconography. Included in the presentation will be many examples and comparisons with other archaeological artifacts."

Margaret combines her training in fine and graphic arts, and data management, with her passion for rock art to produce detailed drawings and photographs for rock art studies and presentations. She received the Archaeological Society of New Mexico's Richard A. Bice Award for Archaeological Achievement in recognition of her outstanding contributions to New Mexico archaeology through preservation and documentation of southwestern rock art sites and service to the Doña Ana Archaeological Society, the ASNM Rock Art Council, and the American Rock Art Research Association.
