Women in Archaeology

at the Center for NM Archaeology

On display through Oct 09, 2020 at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture

Please note this exhibit is on view at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology, at 7 Old Cochiti Road, off the Caja del Rio exit of 599.

This exhibit highlights the work of 11 pioneer women in archaeology who worked in the American Southwest as well as touches on some major early and modern contributors to archaeology throughout the world. 

“The women highlighted in this exhibition made numerous contributions to their field and helped educate many students who went on to pursue careers in archaeology. Through their work, they have turned archaeology into the field it is, leaving a lasting legacy for the future of the discipline,” said exhibit co-curator Emily Hurley. Early on in our field women were discouraged from pursing advanced degrees and conducting field work. By highlighting the work of 11 pioneer women in archaeology who worked here in the American Southwest, our hope to help inspire future generations of women to pursue a career in archaeology."
