Topic:  A Century of Research on the Santa Fe National Forest and Its Impact on Our Understanding of Archaeology in the Northern Rio Grande

Speaker: Mike Bremer, Forest Archaeologist, Espanola Ranger District, Santa Fe Nat. Forest

When:       January 14, 2014, 7 PM

Abstract:   The Jemez and Pecos Forest Reserves were set aside in the early part of the 20th century at the same time archaeological research began in the Upper Rio Grande.  Within the boundaries of the two Forest Reserves and when later combined into the Santa Fe National Forest extensive research was conducted by numerous individuals and institutions synonymous with the development of our understanding of cultural development in the upper reaches of the Rio Grande River.  This talk traces the history of this research within the Forest and synthesizes our dynamic understanding of cultural development in the region.
