Landowner Accidentally Damages Puebloan Site
A La Cieneguilla landowner recently cut into a portion of a prehistoric pueblo while preparing a site for a house.  Archaeologists who investigated the disturbance say the landowner didn’t do anything wrong and had a building permit from the Santa Fe County Growth Management Department, which should have warned him about the ruin, but didn’t.  http://bit.ly/WDQoJc – Santa Fe New Mexican

Lecture Opportunity – Cave Creek
Well-known rock art expert and ethnolinguist Dr. Ekkehart Malotki will discuss claims for Ice Age rock art in North America at the regular meeting of the Desert Foothills Chapter (DFC) of the Arizona Archaeological Society (AAS) on March 13, 2013 at 7:00 PM at the Good Shepherd of the Hills Episocpal Church, 6502 E. Cave Creek Road, Cave Creek, AZ.  At this free event, Dr. Malotki will show why two rock art depictions of Columbian mammoths near Bluff, Utah are authentic, giving scientists pictorial evidence that Paleoamericans coexisted with the megafauna at the end of the Ice Age.  Contact DFC President Glenda Simmons at glendaann@hughes.net or visit the AAS website at http://www.azarchsoc.org/.

Lecture Opportunity – Cortez, CO
The Hisatsinom Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society is pleased to present Gail LaDage on Tuesday, March 5, at 7:00 pm, at the First United Methodist Church, 515 Park Street, Cortez, to discuss her book “Zeke Flora: Legacy in Rings.” LaDage will reveal personal albums, family oral histories, and comments by the professional archaeological community to answer whether Flora, who moved to Durango during the height of the Depression with a family and twenty-three cents in his pocket, was a notorious pothunter or remarkable contributor to Southwest archaeology and dendrochronology. LaDage moved with her family to Durango in 1979 and has also published a book on an endangered rock art site in Waterflow, New Mexico.
