Description

When we think of the Southwest, we usually think of Mesa Verde and other spectacular ruins of the Four Corners. Some of the most interesting archaeology, however, is out on the edges: Fremont in the north and Mimbres in the south.

Join Dr. Steve Lekson as he traces the parallel (and divergent) paths of Fremont and Mimbres and illustrates their journey using selected objects and artifacts from the museum’s collections.
