This morning we received unfortunate news from William Little, of one of our sister organizations, the Doña Ana Archaeological Society:
Excerpt from the next DAAS Newsletter.
This meeting will mark the end of the Society’s active existence. After over seventy years, it is time to fold our tents, put away our trowels and screens, and leave the field to the young. For the time being, we will maintain our Facebook page and the DAAS mailing list. No dues of any sort will be collected. Any funds remaining at the end of the year will be forwarded to the ASNM Scholarship Fund.
We urge all of you to continue your support of avocational archaeology. Two organizations are highly recommended: The Archaeological Society of New Mexico (ASNM), https://
archaeologicalsocietynm.org, and the Grant County Archaeological Society (GCAS), https://www.gcasnm.org/. GCAS holds monthly meetings in the Silver City area, has active projects, and publishes a dandy newsletter – well worth our participation.
