AAA Member Honored with Distinguished Explorer Award

2011 Distinguished Explorer Award Winner

Congratulations to Steve Lekson!

Lekson is the first archaeologist to receive the Distinguished Explorer Award by the Roy Chapman Andrews Society.

A professor and curator of anthropology at the University of Colorado, Dr. Leckson has been discovering and digging ancient sites for nearly 40 years. Before moving to the University of Colorado, he served as President and CEO of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Cortez, Colorado, and as an archaeologist with museums in Arizona and New Mexico. His explorations have been supported by the National Science Foundation, National Geographic Society, and National Park Service.

His most recent excavations have been at Black Mountain pueblo, a huge ruin in the bleak Chihuahua Desert of southern New Mexico. The site may be a “missing link” between the famous Mimbres and Casas Grandes cultures of the Southwest.
