Archaeological Dig Under Way
John Rissetto and crews from the Office of Contract Archaeology of the University of New Mexico are digging up the soccer field at Alameda Elementary School.

That's because underneath the school lies the old Alameda Pueblo.

Rissetto said, "You're looking at where the soccer field was up here and sort of the sod that was associated with it, and then underneath you're looking at actually cultural levels, areas in which people were living and depositing their artifacts. Whether it be pottery, broken pottery or the stone materials that they were using to make their stone tools."
