Title:     The Archaeology of Modern Ritual

Speaker:         Jeff Boyer, Project Director, New Mexico Office of Archaeological Studies

The January program presented by Jeff Boyer, one of our members, will be on the Archaeology of Modern Ritual and will be about the Black Lake Sun Dance site.

Jeff holds an M.A. from the University of New Mexico and has the following statement on the Office of Archaeological Studies web site:

"Since 1987, when I started here, I've worked on the archaeology of different parts of New Mexico but have spent most of my time in the Northern Rio Grande. That's fine with me, since it's my home and the area in which I'm most interested. My current role as project codirector of the combined US 84/285 projects allows me to continue examining the development of prehistoric Puebloan communities in the region, and the expansion of Puebloan and Euroamerican frontiers—interests I've cultivated on other projects through the years. Our work is rewriting the prehistory and history of the northern Rio Grande, sometimes daily. I've also learned about sediments and soils and the potential of adobe-materials analyses to illuminate site structure, so I can say, more accurately than when I started, that I am a "dirt archaeologist."
