Community members excavate a five-by-five meter area with a goal of documenting and preserving a series of Pueblo rooms for public interpretation, while recovering artifacts.

Archaeologists, tribal members, and volunteers will work to systematically excavate a five-by-five meter area just north of the Visitor Center. The goal will be to document and preserve a series of pueblo rooms for public interpretation at the historic site, while recovering thousands of artifacts and material for analysis. You can participate!

Dig It

Hilda Kirschner

Join the Dig Giusewa team—comprised of experts from Jemez Pueblo and Friends of Coronado Historic Site—at Giusewa Pueblo and San Jose Mission every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday beginning on Thursday Aug. 30 (until Oct. 6) to take part in an excavation of a 5x5 meter area at the site. The dig is led by experienced rangers, and offers the opportunity for visitors to take part in the discovery of cultural artifacts—from vessels to projectile points. The guided excavation, which runs from 10am to 2pm, is followed by a quick session wherein the importance of the artifacts is unpacked. Normal admission applies ($5) but is well worth it for the unique experience of participating in a real dig. More information online at kuaua.com/giusewa.
