Lunch lecture highlighted Pajarito Plateau

-A A +A

May 29 marked the first presentation of the year in a series of informal, brown bag lunch lectures taking place in the Bradbury Science Museum Auditorium.
The first lecture, “A Little Bird Told Me: The Prehistory of the Pajarito Plateau,” was hosted by Dr. Jennifer E. Payne, a Team Leader for the archaeologists and cultural resources managers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
In honor of National Heritage Preservation Month, the presentation focused on the high density of archaeological sites present on LANL property and the archeologists’ role in preserving these sites.
“I have been involved in many successful archaeological projects during my time at the laboratory. The Land Conveyance and Transfer Project excavations from 2002-2006 allowed us to learn a lot about the prehistory of the Pajarito Plateau. We also had the privilege of developing professional relationships with Tribal Monitors from the Pueblo de San Ildefonso and Santa Clara Pueblo. That experience is one of the highlights of my time at the laboratory,” Payne said of her work at LANL.
