Here at Coronado Historic Site, we are counting down the days until our archaeological dig begins! On Monday, May 15, the very first work will begin — not with gigantic holes but with staking off the sites and preparation work for the next weeks to come. Archaeology will be happening Monday through Friday, and the best times to come see what people are doing will be between 10:00 and 2:00. Our docent tours will take you to see the sites where work is going on that day, and you will be able to see whatever has been uncovered!
Interesting in checking in on the excavation weekly – or daily? Think about an annual pass to Coronado Historic Site ($10 to visit as often as you like for a whole year!) or join the Friends of Coronado Historic Site.
Friends are able to participate in many different activities such as monthly lectures and tours of interesting sites in our area. This weekend, Friends group members will be escorted through Ghost Ranch. Cattle rustlers with stolen goods, dinosaurs, Navajos, the Gallina, Georgia O’Keeffe and John Wayne… all walked the “Ranch of the Witches” that became Ghost Ranch. John Hayden, retired Forest Service archeologist, will give an illustrated talk on the cultural background of the Ghost Ranch area detailing the Gallina Culture. This is just one example of the amazing trips that our Friends group organizes for members.
