Archaeology Southwest has received a grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation to support the Pueblo of Acoma Preservation Study of the Greater Chaco Landscape.
Read our statement supporting the Chaco Cultural Heritage Area Protection Act of 2018, introduced by New Mexico Senators Udall and Heinrich on May 22.
Together with our partners, we are pleased to announce the Salmon Pueblo Archaeological Research Collection (SPARC) online archive.
For three decades, Archaeology Southwest has practiced a holistic, conservation-based approach to exploring the places of the past. We call this Preservation Archaeology. By exploring what makes a place special, sharing this knowledge in innovative ways, and enacting flexible site protection strategies, we foster meaningful connections to the past and respectfully safeguard its irreplaceable resources.
Chacoan Archaeology at the 21st Century
Even after more than 100 years of scrutiny and debate, Chaco still captivates archaeologists and the public like few other places in the Southwest. The Chaco World is still being studied at all scales and perspectives, and with new scientific and analytical methods. And in today’s era of expanding oil and gas exploration, the greater Chaco landscape is being defended by coalitions of descendant tribal groups, archaeologists, legislators, and other conservation-minded stakeholders.View Highlights
