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.
Sacred and Threatened
Authors in this special edition of Archaeology Southwest Magazine have strong personal, spiritual, cultural, professional, and intellectual connections to the Bears Ears region. Although they might have differing views on the monument itself, they are all committed to respectful preservation of the natural and cultural landscapes of Bears Ears.View Highlights
The Preservation Archaeology Field School Begins Soon
On May 28, 12 undergraduates from colleges and universities around the country will arrive in Tucson for our 2018 field school. After a three-day orientation to Southwestern archaeology, they will head to our field camp in New Mexico’s Cliff valley. Stay tuned to our Preservation Archaeology Blog in June to discover what our students are learning.
