Points Through Time
On display through Oct 01, 2018 at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
Projectile points are one of the most iconic images of archaeology in the American Southwest. This exhibition focuses on some of the projectile points that are commonly found here in New Mexico from Paleoindian times (13,500 years ago), through the Archaic, and into Puebloan times (1,260 to 110 years ago) as well as some of the exotic points that have come to New Mexico from California and Texas.
The exhibit discusses how archaeologists classify points, why they change through time, and how illegal collection of points can impact the archaeological record.
This exhibit opens on Saturday October 21, 2017 at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road). After that, the exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on holidays.
Also on exhibit at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
