What's New & Happening with
Taos Archaeological Society?
December 14, 2021 5:30pm MST
Zoom ID: 5458429500
Carrie Leven has worked as an archaeologist on the Carson National Forest in Taos since moving back to New Mexico in 1993. One of her special areas of interest is the archaeology of the Valle Vidal and its role as a hunting grounds and travel way between the Rio Grande Valley and the Plains prior to and after European arrival.
TOPIC - Carrie has been researching and finding evidence of the settlement and exploitation of the Mexican Land Grants -- including the busted mining boomtown of LaBelle on the Sangre de Cristo Land Grant on the west side of the Valle Vidal, and the railroad logging settlement at Ponil Park on the Maxwell Land Grant on the east side.
Carrie will show slides of archaeological sites and talk about the history and land use of this unique portion of the Questa Ranger District that is hidden along the high-country road that crosses the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Costilla and Cimarron, New Mexico.

History of Taos Archaeological Society Project
An effort is currently underway to build a historical timeline of TAS events and history! We need your help!
The Taos Archaeological Society has operated for 34 years. In that time, many documents have been produced. Unfortunately, TAS does not have a complete record of documents produced and distributed.
We are in need of documents/publications that date from September 1999 through February 2014.
You can help by contributing:
Past bulletins, meeting minutes, financial statements, member lists, and other communications.
Thank you for your continued support of the Taos Archaeological Society.
For more information, or to send documents, please contact Paul Mcguff at firstname.lastname@example.org
