Happy New Year! Well, the AAS made it through 2018, which was a banner year
for us. We hosted the Archaeological Society of New Mexico’s annual meeting, had a full slate of excellent speakers for the year and we’re kicking off 2019 with anticipation for the Society for American Archaeology’s annual meeting in April, to be held in Albuquerque! For January, we have an wonderful speaker who has a great topic! Join us Tuesday, January 15th at 7:30 to hear Lou Schuyler speak about the jewelry of Pottery Mound. Our meeting will be at our normal venue, the Albuquerque Museum. All our monthly meetings are free and open to anyone, so come join us, we hope to see you there!
THE JEWELRY OF POTTERY MOUND WITH A COMPARISON TO TIJERAS PUEBLO
7:30 PM, Tuesday, January 15, 2019
Albuquerque Museum of Art and History
2000 Mountain Road NW
This presentation is built on research of the jewelry artifacts excavated at Pottery Mound from the 1950s through the 1980s by Frank Hibben, and separately by Linda Cordell in 1979. It will include photos and descriptions of jewelry artifacts in the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology collections and the site context. Several years ago, Lou Schuyler presented her research on the jewelry at Tijeras Pueblo at a previous AAS meeting. Jewelry from the two sites will be compared in terms of quantities, materials, styles, and contexts in which they were found.
Lou Schuyler spent over thirty-five years in the business and technical aspects of Information Technology with IBM, The McGraw-Hill Companies, The American Management Association, and as an independent consultant. She and her husband Hank retired to Albuquerque in 2004 from the New York City area.
As a volunteer at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, Lou has created tools to make archaeological artifact information available to researchers and has authored several papers available through the Museum’s website. In retirement, she has also become a potter and added weaving to her participation in the Fiber Arts.
The Albuquerque Archaeological Society is an avocational group that advocates preserving archaeological and other cultural resources by informing members and the public about archaeological and ethnological subjects through our meetings, presentations, newsletter, other electronic media, field trips, volunteer efforts, field surveys, and studies. Membership is only $25 for an individual or family, and it’s free to students with a Student ID or current class schedule. Membership puts you on our mailing list for our monthly newsletter, and gives you access to our field trips, volunteering endeavors, and our seminars. However, our meetings are always free and open to the public, with a guest lecturer and refreshments, great conversation, and the chance to socialize with those who share an interest in archaeology, both professionals and avocational members. Come see what we’re all about! We’d love your company!
