Pecos NHP Offers Free Lecture Archaeology of Pecos: Myth, Mystery, and Cultural Continuity

Mission Trail - Marker 4b

Pecos National Historical Park Archaeologist Jeremy Moss will offer a presentation on the history of archaeology at the park, future avenues of research and the many cultural connections that bind modern Pueblo groups to Pecos Pueblo on Saturday, June 9th at 1:00 p.m. at the Vista Grande Public Library.

 For more than six hundred years, Pecos Pueblo served as a gateway community connecting the Great Plains and the Rio Grande Valley. The allure, mysteries, and myths of Pecos have fascinated archaeologists since Adolph Bandelier first recorded the site in 1881. The cultural connections to modern Pueblo groups makes it an interesting place to explore cultural continuity and to assess the legends and lore that first drew archaeologists to Pecos at the turn of the 20th century.

 Please note, this program will take place at the Vista Grande Public Library, which is located at 14 Avenida Torreon, Santa Fe, NM 87508.  Space is limited, so please arrive early.
