Rock Art workshop and survey
New Mexico State University and Lawrence Loendorf will conduct a rock art workshop and survey project for the United States Army Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site of southeastern Colorado (USA). The session will be directed toward rock art sites on the Hogback—a long, steep-sided ridge extending for about fifteen kilometers along the southern boundary of the Maneuver Site.
The workshop-fieldwork session will start on May 11, 2007 (arrival date) and continue to May 17. In the session, Loendorf will teach Piñon Canyon rock art during mornings of the first two days and then spend afternoons on the Hogback to familiarize participants with the rock art. The crew will then complete rock art survey for the remaining four days in those sections of the Hogback which remain to be searched for rock art sites.
The workshop and fieldwork session will be based at an isolated ranch house near the southern border to the Maneuver site. Participants will need to bring a tent or trailer for sleeping. Once participants are on the base, they will be expected to stay for the length of the session. The Hogback is steep-sided with uneven ground across much of its length. There may be some opportunities for individuals to assist with recording sites as they are found but the emphasis will be on searching for new sites. Therefore participants will need to be in relatively good physical condition. The session will be limited to 8 individuals and the slots will likely fill quickly. Preference will be given to members of the Colorado Rock Art Association but prior experience in any archaeological field work is also important.
