PAAC Fieldwork Project – July 7 – 20 - Lone Mesa
(near Dolores, Colorado)
A summer fieldwork project for the Program for
Avocational Archaeological Certification (PAAC) will
be held July 7 to July 20 (with breaks for the
weekend). Folks are welcome to sign up for any
portion of the session. The location is Lone Mesa,
northwest of Dolores, Colorado. This project will
involve a variety of accessibility - some places
will be nice and flat, others, not so much (and
potentially rugged). The focus will be surveying
areas of interest to Colorado Parks and Wildlife
staff in planning for the future of this piece of
state property. Cultural resources expected to be
identified and recorded include historic Ute and
Anglo sites as well as Archaic sites.
Having some sort of experience in archaeology
(volunteer, PAAC class, former professional
experience, etc.) is ideal, but as this is part of
PAAC, there will be a lot of on-the-ground training.
There are opportunities to get up to speed with
conducting a survey: the first is through the Basic
Site Survey class being taught in Boulder (see the
PAAC class schedule for dates and location) which
starts next week. I am also working to have the
Basic Site Survey class held in Cortez in May.
