Subject: FW: Dinetah Workshop
Just to let you all know that this is coming up soon. Space limited to 30.
DINETAH ARCHAEOLOGY WORKSHOP
SET FOR OCTOBER 18-20, 2012
Sponsored by the BLM and NMAC, the Dinetah Workshop is one of the most popular archaeology training experiences in New Mexico. Last offered in 2009, it filled in a day and a half. So if you are interested in learning about Dinetah and Anasazi archaeology from the pros, seeing some truly amazing sites, and earning permit and educational credit from the BLM and HPD, better act fast, really fast.
The workshop will be held in Farmington and the greater Dinetah permit area from October 18-20, 2012. It will be divided into two parts. During the first day, participants will be exposed to a variety of topics by CRM and Federal archaeologists active in the region. Talks will focus on the region’s rich cultural history, the identification of ceramic types common to the permit area, “culturally abused” trees, flaked stone research, and more. On the following two days, Jim Copeland of the BLM will guide us on an exciting trip through numerous cultural resources that you need to know about in the Dinetah. You will get a chance to use your newly gained ceramic knowledge and to see axe cut trees, subtle features, picture-worthy pueblitos, and some fantastic scenery.
Please remember that training courses sponsored by the BLM may be credited towards the 80 days of local experience. Two days of credit will be awarded for every day of training. In the case of this workshop, six days may be applied to the BLM experience requirement. The HPD offers hour for hour educational credits but you must complete the workshop to receive it. NMAC will issue a certificate (suitable for framing!) to each person who completes the course. This is an excellent opportunity for companies to get their crew chiefs training while they work towards those much sought after Dinetah permits.
The course is limited to 30 people so don’t put off registering. The cost of this workshop is a bargain at only $45 for NMAC members and BLM personnel and $70 for nonmembers (includes membership for 2013). Funds collected from the workshops go to support NMAC grants and research. To register, e-mail [REDACTED]. Reservations will be on a first-come-first served basis. All participants must pay in advance. To ensure your place, email Chris and then when it confirmed you have a place, send your fee [REDACTED]. Cancellations after that date will forfeit half of the fees.
