Abstract

Field training for archaeological students at the University of New Mexico began in 1929 when Edgar L. Hewett established a camp in Chaco Canyon. For a total of fifteen seasons, it trained students--many of them women--who later made important contributions to anthropology. This study of the politics, personnel, and fieldwork of the Chaco field school discusses its impact on scholarship, its role in preparing professional archaeologists, and its relationships with several New Mexico institutions such as the School of American Research.
