Tularosa Meeting Point

By David Greenwald

Jornada Research Institute has scheduled the weekend of February 13 and 14 as another field session at Creekside Village. This session is open to our members; if you would like to participate, but are not a member, please join our organization and help support the research programs we are currently conducting.

Creekside Village is a large pit house site with a great kiva or community structure. The kiva has produced radiocarbon dates that indicate it was constructed about AD 700. Ditch systems, a possible reservoir, and an enhanced spring are also present, suggesting that agriculture and water management were important aspects and keys to meeting subsistence needs.

Contact David Greenwald for more information on how to join the field session.
