This year’s Pecos Conference will be held on near Pecos, New Mexico on Rowe Mesa, August 11-14.
Each August, archaeologists gather under open skies somewhere in the southwestern United States or northwestern Mexico. We set up a large tent for shade, and then spend three or more days together discussing recent research, problems of the field, and the challenges of the profession. Most participants camp at the conference.
Open to all, the Pecos Conference remains an important and superlative opportunity for students and students of prehistory to meet with professional archaeologists on a one-on-one informal basis to learn about the profession, gain access to resources and to new research opportunities, and to test new methods and theories related to archaeology
