Archival Photo of the Week 4/1/2011

This is one of the many dynamite explosions at the Blackwater Draw site during the gravel mining period.  This photo is from the late 1950s to early 1960s and is a view to the northeast.  This photo is a sad reminder of the archaeological tragedy at the Clovis site and so many more artifact and culturally rich sites across the Southern Plains.  Blasting, mining, and looting  are part of the long history at Blackwater Draw.
