Diffusion or Collective Consciousness?: Cultural Interaction and Traditions in Southern Mexico and the Maya Area.
There has been much controversy about how culture has developed in Southern Mexico and how it has affected the world views of other cultures in this area. Recent excavations and archaeological research suggests there are many connections, but what are the origins of these important complex associations with nature and ritual? This talk discusses the possible origins of these world views.

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
