Salmon Pueblo Archaeological Research Collection

The digitization of archaeological field records, original drawings, and photographs, and integration into an existing research archive, along with electronic databases of data pertaining to the Salmon Pueblo site in northern New Mexico, which documents a prehistoric Puebloan cultural center dating to the 11th century CE and which was excavated in the 1970s.

The goal of the proposed Salmon Pueblo Archaeological Research Collection (SPARC) project is to preserve and make accessible incomparable legacy data from the important excavations of Salmon Pueblo. Built around 1090 CE, this ancestral Pueblo site was the first major colony outside of Chaco Canyon and was a cultural center on the north bank of the San Juan River 45 miles north of Chaco. The site of Salmon Pueblo is important both for its place in the larger Chacoan world of the twelfth century and its unique archaeological history. A collaboration exists between four institutions--the Salmon Ruins Museum, Archaeology Southwest, the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia. Support for SPARC will go toward three phases: (1) digital acquisition, (2) data integration and management, and (3) online preservation of and access to materials.
