Saturday, November 5, 2016, 8:00 am, $165 per person
Located close to Santa Fe, the Galisteo Basin was home to a thriving network of Ancestral Puebloan communities in Pre-Columbian times. The region’s ruins played a key role in the history of Southwestern archaeology, and were the first to be excavated using the now-standard method of stratigraphic analysis. The Galisteo Basin is also home to a remarkable diversity of rock art made by its ancient inhabitants. Our full-day expedition will be led by Gary Hein, who has made a specialty of our region’s petroglyphs. Highlights include rock art near Pueblo Blanco, Galisteo Pueblo, Petroglyph Hill, and more.
