During this six-week intensive course, students will participate in an on-going archaeological research project in southeastern New Mexico. The focus of the research is the excavation of a 14th-century Pueblo village (Bloom Mound) that was involved in widespread interaction and trade with other Pueblo communities in the Southwest and with nomadic bison hunters in the Southern Plains. Working as part of a team, students will learn to map, excavate, and record archaeological remains, and to analyze the artifacts they have unearthed. Students will also go on weekend field trips to learn about regional archaeology, attend a Mescalero Apache puberty rite ceremony, and visit State and National Parks and Monuments in the region (e.g., Carlsbad Caverns, Three Rivers Petroglyph Park, White Sands National Monument, and Salinas National Monument). Students who participate in the field work may wish to continue to work on the artifacts in Ann Arbor during subsequent semesters—on a volunteer basis, as part of a UROP project, as an independent study course for 1-3 credits, and potentially as the basis for a senior Honors thesis.

June 1-July 15, 2009
