Pueblo de las Milpas
August 18, 2017
Our next field trip is to Pueblo de las Milpas, also known as AS-8. It is a 46-room pueblo dating to the 13th century. Located on a mesa on BLM land between San Ysidro and the Ojito Wilderness, it was excavated beginning in 1975 by the Albuquerque Archaeological Society, culminating in a 1998 report. The road to the site is no longer passable, but we will drive to the base of the mesa and hike up. Be prepared for a little exertion, and bring plenty of water. The hike is about a third of a mile, with an elevation gain of about 200 feet.
Our field trips are open to all current members of the Albuquerque Archaeological Society. For more information, email email@example.com
