Cost of trip: $85 for FOA members; $95 for non-FOA members

Explore Jemez Province, a cultural area of more than forty pueblo sites, north of present Jemez Pueblo. Early ceramics place the date of Vallecitos Pueblo to the early part of the area's history, around 1250 to 1350 AD. It is located three and a half miles northeast of Jemez Pueblo, within the boundaries of the reservation. It is one of the villages found at the lower elevations of the Jemez Province and is the type locality of the Vallecitos Black-on-White ceramic style which is believed to be a precursor to the Jemez Black-on-White ceramic style.

The tour will go through two ancient villages, one of which is Vallecitos Pueblo and another village nearby to the east (LA 248 and LA 258). Following the tour and lunch, Marlon Magdalena, Instructional Coordinator for the Jemez Historic Site, will give a presentation on warfare and conflict in Pueblo Country at the Walatowa Visitor Center and Museum at Jemez Pueblo.

The difficulty of this trip is designated MODERATE. Bring your own bag lunch. Drinks and snacks are included in the cost of the trip.
