A Day in the Life at Corral Redondo, Peru

I recently wrote a post for the Institute for Field Research’s blog on “Community Collaboration in Archaeology”.  The post (which is also available in Spanish) talks about the ways we collaborated with the communities we lived and worked with during our 2018 season on the  Corral Redondo Project (Proyecto Arqueológico Corral Redondo).  You can find the blog post here: A Day in the Life at Corral Redondo

Off to Peru’s South Coast – The Corral Redondo Project

This summer I’ll be heading to the south coast of Peru to work on a brand new excavation at the site of Corral Redondo.  This is the first time I’ll be working on an excavation in Peru and I’m really excited for this new adventure, but also maybe a little nervous.  Of course the exciting part is to get to travel to a new place, experience the culture and life there for several weeks, and to meet and work with new people.  But also the bit of uncertainty about the work and the project and what the day to day will be like can add a little bit of stress to starting a new archaeological project.
