Recipients of the Carryl B. Martin Research Award

The Carryl B. Martin award was established in 2015 with a $25,000 bequest from long time AAHS member Carryl Martin. These funds are being used to grant a competitive award of $5,000.00 for each of five years to a high-quality archaeological or historical research project that focuses on significant questions in the archaeology of the Southwest United States or Northwest Mexico. In the spirit of Carryl Martin projects that allow opportunities for participation by avocationalists will receive special consideration.
