From our house to yours…The 14th season of Archaeology Café celebrates and shares Archaeology Southwest’s current Preservation Archaeology projects with you. Our staff members will bring you in on what we’re doing right now to learn more about the past and help protect special places.
Join us on December 1, 2020, when Preservation Archaeologist Shannon Cowell and Kelly Jenks (New Mexico State University) will discuss “Beloved Things: Micaceous Bean Pots and Connections to the Hispanic New Mexican Homeland.” In times of stress, we seek comfort and reaffirm identity through heirloom tools and methods. Shannon and Kelly present a case study on Hispanic women and heirloom bean pots.
Space is limited, so register for free today at the link below to participate, and join in at 6:00 p.m. MST (what time is that compared to where I live?) on December 1, 2020, through Zoom* on your preferred device. (To learn how to install Zoom, click here.) Preregistration is required before the event.
*After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Even though you’ll be able to see and hear us during this live online event, we won’t be able to see or hear you—no need to change out of pajamas or hush a barking dog, come as you are!
Load up a plate, grab a drink, and tune in!

WHEN & WHERE
Register here ahead of time, and meet us virtually through your preferred device using Zoom. Cameras and microphones aren’t necessary.
During the presentation, you can use the question-and-answer tool within Zoom Webinar to ask questions as they come to mind. We will be monitoring the question-and-answer feed during the program, and we’ll tag questions for the presenter to address in the Q & A portion.
CAN’T JOIN US LIVE?
No problem! About a week after each café, we’ll post videos of each presentation to the video archive on our website and to our YouTube channel. We’ll share links on our Facebook and Twitter and in our Southwest Archaeology Today and This Month at Archaeology Southwest email newsletters.
