July 18 – Maxwell Museum Tour

Maxwell_Museum_of_Anthropology

 

July 18, 2015

We will focus on the Kuaua Pueblo collections and the Santiago Ruins collections. Closely associated with the Coronado Expedition, Santiago was the first Rio Grande pueblo site to be excavated by UNM in 1934. In the 1950s the entire site was obliterated by bulldozers quarrying gravel. Now unmarked it rests below a housing development east of highway 528.  We will view wonderful artifacts and pottery that are not on display and we will have plenty of time to ask questions and see the entire museum.  We will take a break for lunch (Restaurants along Central) and lastly tour the Maxwell Museum before heading home.  (Trip limit 30 – No Cost)
