2021's First GCAS Field Trip!

2021 Arch Fair 1 2021 Arch Fair 5It's been a long time coming - 16 months to be exact - but the GCAS field trip program is gradually reemerging from its Pandemic Pause. Our group jumped at the chance to inaugurate our New Normal by visiting the Gila River Farm archaeological site near Cliff, New Mexico, on June 26, 2021. Our group's friend, Dr. Karen Schollmeyer of Archaeology Southwest, and her field school crew shared with us the latest results of their work at their annual Archaeology Fair.

The Archaeology Fair is the season's opportunity for field school participants to inform the public about the Gila River Farm's archaeological excavation and its significance in the region's broader cultural context. The Fair is a casual, visitor-friendly format that showcases the training the students have gained in excavation, field work, and research. It also gives them the opportunity to hone their skills in education and public outreach. Every year brings something new for us avocational archaeologists to learn. It's a win-win event for everyone.

2021 Arch Fair 2Enjoy these glimpses into this year's event, and make plans now to join us next year as Dr. Schollmeyer and her students continue their research!
