Kari Schleher with the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and archaeologist Ann F. Ramenofsky will give a talk about the archaeology and history of New Mexico’s San Marcos Pueblo at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the First United Methodist Church, 515 N. Park St., in Cortez.
The talk is presented by the Hisatsinom Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society as part of the Four Corners Lecture Series. It is free and open to the public.
Schleher and Ramenofsky are co-editors of the book “The Archaeology and History of Pueblo San Marcos – Change and Stability,” which details San Marcos, one of the largest late prehistoric Pueblo settlements along the Rio Grande.
San Marcos was a hub before Spanish colonization and through the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, according to Jason Vaughn of Crow Canyon. The book records a decade of archaeological investigations at San Marcos, ancestral home to Kewa (formerly Santo Domingo) and Cochiti descendants.
Schleher is the laboratory manager at Crow Canyon and an adjunct assistant professor of anthropology at the University of New Mexico. Ramenofsky is a professor emerita of anthropology at the University of New Mexico.
