Third Thursday Food for Thought Zoom Presentation: “Interaction on the Northern Mogollon Frontier: Perspectives from the Cañada Alamosa”

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

On Thursday, April 18, 2024, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” presentation will feature  “Interaction on the Northern Mogollon Frontier: Perspectives from the Cañada Alamosa” by archaeologist Karl W. Laumbach. This free Zoom presentation will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., ARIZONA/Mountain Standard Time (same as Pacific Daylight Time).

The Cañada Alamosa is a spring-fed canyon located on the northeastern edge of the Mimbres Mogollon world. The Ojo Caliente or Warm Spring supplies 2,000 gallons per minute, ensuring a perennial flow to the Rio Alamosa as it flows to the Rio Grande. Separated by 50 miles and the imposing Black Range from the Mimbres Mogollon cultural center, the canyon’s well-watered position on a “zone of interaction” between the Mogollon and Ancestral Puebloans resulted in a unique cultural sequence from the pithouse period up to the abandonment of the canyon in the 14th century reflecting a variety of local interactions as well as changes in their respective centers. Karl Laumbach’s archaeological career in southern New Mexico since 1974 included direction of the Human Systems Research nonprofit organization’s Cañada Alamosa project.
