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 kyyote@msn.com . The more the merrier!

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

Mimbreños y Paquiméños: Current Research by Thatcher Rogers

Ramos poly MNM Mimbres serpentGCAS member Thatcher Rogers is currently a PhD student at UNM, a ceramics analyst/archaeologist for the Office of Contract Archeology and Aspen CRM Solutions, and one of the recipients of our Nancy Coinman Grant Awards. He has kindly allowed us to include on our website his recently-published paper, "Mimbreños y Paquiméños: Historicism and the Ancestry of the Casas Grandes Ceramic Tradition."

For those who have not already read Thatcher's research, he expands upon his prior research into connections between the Mimbres and Casas Grandes cultures by assessing certain ceramic forms and designs that might (or might not) suggest a relationship between the Mimbres and Casas Grandes ceramic traditions.  He offers three alternative hypotheses and suggests areas of concentration for future research in order to fill gaps in the evidentiary record.

The ASNM's current annual volume 47 includes Thatcher's research paper at pp. 203-226; or you can read the complete paper now right on this here website. Thatcher has graciously offered to discuss this topic further at a future GCAS monthly meeting, so stay tuned...

Thank you, Thatcher!
