Heitman Wins $300K Grant to Digitize Pueblo Artifacts
A new $300,000 grant will allow a UNL professor and a team of researchers to digitize millions of artifacts, specimens and samples from excavations of a 1,000-year-old Pueblo civilization in northwest New Mexico.
Carrie Heitman, UNL assistant professor of anthropology, will help lead the National Endowment for the Humanities-funded project to digitize the Salmon Pueblo Archeological Research Collection.
Salmon Pueblo, near modern-day Bloomfield, New Mexico, was home to one of the largest ancestral communities outside Chaco Canyon.
