We have a new director!
Welcome, welcome, welcome to Dr. Brendon Asher, the newest member of our team! Not only has Dr. Asher joined our community at Blackwater Draw, he's also joined the Anthropology Department, Eastern New Mexico University, and the wonderful city of Portales! I hope you'll all help me welcome him to all of our wonderful communities, and stop by the site soon to see him!
