the gorge project

Home Landscape.4

Initiated in 2007, the Gorge Project is an ongoing network of research collaborations in northern New Mexico centered on the landscapes, visual culture, and archaeological traces within the Rio Grande gorge. The project has three commitments: first, to the documentation of the material record of northern New Mexican history; second, to the participation of descendent communities and concerned members of the public in the interpretation of that record; third, to intellectual experimentation and the development of new archaeological theory. This website provides overviews of past research, links to project publications, and notices of upcoming events. For further information on the Gorge Project, contact Severin Fowles ( or Benjamin Alberti (

Funding for the Gorge Project has been provided by the National Science Foundation (Award 1321978), the National Endowment for the Humanities, Barnard College, and Framingham State University. The Gorge Project gratefully acknowledges its ongoing collaborations with the Bureau of Land Management (Taos Office), the Taos Archaeological Society, and the People’s Republic of Dixon.
