                                                           Tonight’s Speaker

                                            Dr.Hayward F. Franklin      

Hayward has worked with many archaeological projects in Arizona and New Mexico.

His Ph.D. dissertation (University of Arizona) involved the excavation and analysis of a major Hohokam-Salado site in the San Pedro Valley. He then served as a National Park Service Interpretive Ranger at Mesa Verde National Park.

Between 1974 and 1980 he directed the ceramics lab at Salmon Ruin, a large Chaco culture pueblo near Bloomfield, NM. Concurrently, he was Assistant Professor at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales.

After a year as a student at Albuquerque T-VI in 1980, he was hired as an instructor in Computer Programming, and remained on the faculty until his retirement from CNM in 2005. Computer skills included programming and data processing.

In a separate but "parallel" career, Hayward analyzed and wrote about ceramics for a number of major contract projects, most of them connected with Office of Contract Archaeology at the University of New Mexico.

Since his retirement from teaching, he has been engaged in an intensive analysis of Pottery Mound glazeware ceramics. As a Research Associate at the Maxwell Museum, he works closely with David Phillips in his continuing research. This research has produced four reports on Pottery Mound dating and ceramic history. His interest in PIV glazeware pottery has led to several recent research projects involving data from other sites in the Middle Rio Grande region.

Hayward is a member of SAA, Albuquerque Archaeological Society, and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Archaeological Society of New Mexico. He is also a member of the Society for American Archaeology, Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society, New Mexico State Archaeological Society, Albuquerque Archaeological Society. He is a co-editor of the journal Pottery Southwest. Hayward gives instruction in prehistoric ceramics for SiteWatch, NMAC, and is a speaker at archaeological societies in the Albuquerque area.

TOPIC

The subject of the talk deals with establishing a comprehensive chronology

for Kuaua Pueblo. Situated near Bernalillo, this major PIV (Classic)

period site contained about 900 ground floor rooms, and an unknown

number of second story rooms.  Unfortunately, due to wholescale

hurried excavations in the late 1930s and subsequent erosion of

the fragile adobe walls, the site today is maybe not impressive.

Chaco Canyon walls were carefully laid up with tabular sandstone!

 

A limited testing project about five years ago used test squares

around the perimeter of most of the site in order to determine

the extent of artifact distribution as caused by discard and erosion.

The ceramic collection from these tests was analyzed for pottery type

by me and a trained crew of volunteers at the Coronado State Historic Site.

Over 2000 sherds yielded a good picture of the overall length of occupation,

and the sequence of construction of three plaza roomblocks.

History of Taos Archaeological Society Project


 An effort is currently underway to build a historical timeline of TAS events and history! We need your help!

The Taos Archaeological Society has operated for 34 years. In that time, many documents have been produced. Unfortunately, TAS does not have a complete record of documents produced and distributed.

  We are in need of documents/publications that date from September 1999 through February 2014. 

 You can help by contributing:

Past bulletins, meeting minutes, financial statements, member lists, and other communications. 

Thank you for your continued support of the Taos Archaeological Society.

For more information, or to send documents, please contact Paul Mcguff  at pmcguff@aol.com
