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.

Online Via Zoom: Our October 20, 2021, Featured Speaker, Thatcher Rogers

TRogersOur GCAS monthly meeting in October will be a Zoom function offered by our Featured Speaker, GCAS member and Jornada Research Institute Research Associate, Thatcher Rogers. He will present "Becoming a 'Pueblo': Late Prehispanic Shifts in the Sierra Blanca as Viewed from Robinson Pueblo" - reflecting his investigations in the Northern Jornada Mogollon (Lincoln) area. As usual, expect your Zoom link via email about a week prior to the meeting, then hop online about 6:45 PM on October 20 to get settled. Thatcher will begin his talk at 7PM sharp, describing:

Historically, investigations in the Jornada Mogollon region often focus on one of two locations: the Salinas pueblos or the various sites identified within the Hueco Bolson or, more recently, the Tularosa Basin. Yet, whereas these align well within an early identified and strongly supported distinction within the Jornada Mogollon between those sites nearer to Salinas and those near El Paso, the Sierra Blanca, tends to be poorly integrated into broader discussions. This is despite geochemical evidence demonstrating that most Chupadero Black-on-white pottery, a ceramic icon of the Northern Jornada Mogollon, found in southern New Mexico came from the Sierra Blanca area, not the Salinas area. In this presentation, I aim to connect changes and trends identified at Robinson Pueblo, one of the largest sites in the Sierra Blanca, to those found throughout south-central New Mexico between AD 1150-1450.

Please join us to hear about Thatcher's latest research!
