General Description / Special Programs

Etzanoa is the second largest known prehistoric archaeological site in the United States. The site dates to AD 1450-1700 and was visited in 1601 by a Spanish expedition. Eyewitness accounts can be accessed here. We are working in an undisturbed location that yielded  a dense  concentration of features and cultural materials in 2017. We will be hand excavating with shovels and trowels, with dry screening and flotation. We will be ground truthing remote sensing targets, using a total station, and     using laser scanners for mapping. Students will gain experience in all aspects of field excavation and recording.
