Tucson, Ariz. (May 18, 2018)—Archaeology Southwest, together with its partners University of Nebraska-Lincoln-Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia (IATH) and the Salmon Ruins Museum, is happy to announce the Salmon Pueblo Archaeological Research Collection (SPARC) online archive. SPARC can be accessed at salmonpueblo.org.
SPARC was a team effort led by PI Dr. Carrie Heitman (UNL), Co-PI Paul Reed (Archaeology Southwest), Dr. Worthy Martin (ITAH), and Larry Baker (Salmon Ruins Museum).
The project is an online resource that allows users to search more than 140,500 records, including approximately 13,000 photographs, 29,000 documents, and 24 data tables with information on particular artifact types, such as ceramics vessels, ornaments, and bone tools. The records are from the comprehensive excavations of the Salmon Pueblo completed in the last 40 years and led by the late archaeologist Dr. Cynthia Irwin-Williams.
This project was supported with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
