2020 Carryl B. Martin Award goes to Thatcher Rogers

The 2020 Carryl B. Martin award of $5,00o has been given to Thatcher Rogers of the University of New Mexico for his project entitled Between Casas Grandes and Salado: Community Formation and Interaction at the Pendleton Ruin Site in the Borderlands of the American Southwest/Northwest Mexico Region, A.D. 1200-1450.

This project seeks to examine how groups located in fringe and peripheral areas adopt cultural technologies and behavioral attributes from cultural cores and will explore these processes on both a local and a regional scale through an examination of late prehispanic settlements in the International Four Corners area of the American Southwest/Mexican Northwest region.

Eight excellent proposals from eight different institutions were received making the choice difficult for the Awards Committee.
