4-15-2018 – Lecture – Dig Kuaua


The Dig Kuaua project was an archaeological partnership between Coronado Historic Site and the Office of Archaeological Studies. It sought to answer several questions regarding Kuaua Pueblo through volunteer test excavations. Archaeologists Richard Montoya and Lynette Etsitty worked with Manager Barbour and Ranger Ortega to put on the dig which was completed on June 30, 2017. Excavations identified several unexpected architectural elements including an unexcavated pit house/kiva as well as rare forms of pottery, projectile points, and a colonial metal artifact possibly linked to the Coronado Expedition.

An update covering the results of analysis of research on items found during the dig will be presented by Ethan Ortega, Education Coordinator, Coronado Historic Site.

2pm at the DeLavy House
