New research partnership at The Archaeology Field School at SMU-in-Taos

Tepuy%20shot.jpgThe Archaeology Field School at SMU-in-Taos begins a unique education and research partnership this summer with students and faculty from Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa., uniting two of the nation's leading archaeology programs on Southern Methodist University's New Mexico campus.

"This collaboration will create one of the strongest archaeology field training programs in the nation, if not the world," said Mike Adler, SMU-in-Taos executive director. "It leverages the strengths of both institutions."

The SMU-in-Taos campus is sited on an archaeological treasure trove in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains within the Carson National Forest.
