Third Thursday Food for Thought Online Presentation – “The Elk Ridge Community in the Mimbres Pueblo World”

May 19, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

On May 19, 2022, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” presentation will feature “The Elk Ridge Community in the Mimbres Pueblo World” by archaeologist Barbara J. Roth, Ph.D. This free online Zoom presentation will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. ARIZONA/Mountain Standard Time (same as Pacific Daylight Time).

Elk Ridge was the largest pueblo in the northern portion of the Mimbres River valley during the Classic Mimbres period (1000-1130 CE). Recent excavations at the site combined with survey data indicate that it was part of a thriving community with social ties to other nearby pueblos and likely served as the ritual and perhaps economic hub for these smaller pueblos. In this presentation, Dr. Roth will discuss data from fieldwork she directed at Elk Ridge and surrounding sites and will explore how and why Elk Ridge played such a prominent role in this portion of the Mimbres River Valley.
