Deming, New Mexico


Over the last two years, I have been conducting preliminary research at the Black Mountain site (LA 49), the largest known Black Mountain phase (provisionally dated A.D. late 1100s/early 1200s-1300) site in the Mimbres region. I received funding from the Lewis and Clark Fund through the American Philosophical Society and the National Science Foundation Dissertation Improvement Grant to conduct research field research and laboratory analysis. Now that field work is complete, I am focusing on laboratory analysis. During the spring of 2013, I spent 6 weeks at Texas A&M to focus on my ceramic analysis.
