New Mexico Prehistory 2011

Thanks to all who braved the heat to come out for the New Mexico Prehistory Weekend this year.  Pottery firing was done off-site due to an open flame ban but the results were remarkable.  The work of Ulysses Reid is not to be missed.


Dung and Osage Orange scraps.

After burn.

The finished product.

Cleaned up and on display.

Many folks were introduced to the spear thrower (atlatl).

Bead working demonstrated.

General pre-industrial technology of the southwest was covered.

And, as always, yucca fiber art was a big hit.

There was a large turn out of knappers (ooga booga to you all), archery, native plant talks, and horn working.

I was remiss in taking photos so if anyone would like to contribute, we would be glad to post them.

Thanks to all who participated.
