New Mexico Before Columbus

Alan Osborne, a NM Humanities Council Chautauqua Speaker, will present a short history of New Mexico prior to the European Age of Discovery. Osborne is a co-founder of Southwest Seminars of Santa Fe. 

Synopsis: Life in North America before Columbus is a long and fascinating human story which is often overlooked or condensed in our history books in favor of the colonial explorations, exploits, settlements and stories. We now have the advantage of more than a half century of state-sponsored archaeological investigations and more than a century of anthropological interaction with New Mexico and the Southwest. We live in one of the most studied cultural areas in North America north of Mexico with more than 100,000 identified historical sites cataloged from the long span of human habitation here. The talk will include a look at Paleo-Indian, Archaic, and Classic ancestral cultures as we understand them today.

Sunday, April 16, 2017 2:00 PM thru 03:00 PM
Where:
