OAS | July 2023

Chiles and Sherds 2023 is a wrap! Despite the weather cancellation, the Friends of Archeology team went out of their way to organize a number of follow-up hikes to accommodate the folks who signed up. I was fortunate to join the tour this past Sunday, led by Chuck Hannaford. Chuck’s extensive knowledge of migration, residential and and image-making histories was incredible to listen to. The rock-art was overwhelming in its scale and complexity. I, like many others, am grateful for programs like this. They demonstrate the need for repositories of archaeological information like the OAS, and the need to protect spaces like San Cristobal. Kudos to the Friends of Archeology for not only raising awareness, but raising funds to support more programs like Chiles and Sherds!
