[  Please distribute this message widely. Here is an opportunity for an
avocational archaeologist or non-archaeologist to become part of an
archaeological field project in the American Southwest.  Forget the
microwave.  Got a really good dutch oven biscuit recipe?  Can you serve
hearty old-west meals as well as kosher, ethnic and vegetarian?  Do you
know how to make birthday cakes and home-made ice cream in the field?
Could you set a table the way A.E. Kidder did at Pecos Pueblo?  Could you
re-create Kidder's Pecos field menu?  The only known job hazard for the
Cookie might be incurring the wrath of the field crew by serving picante
sauce made in NEW YORK CITY !!!  -- SASIG Ed. ]

We are looking for a field cook for the Eastern Mimbres Archaeological
Project, run by Michelle Hegmon and Margaret Nelson of Arizona State
University.  Dates are May 25 - July 18.  Location is our field camp west
of Truth or Consequences, NM.  The camp includes a house with a basic
kitchen, but everyone sleeps in tents.  The setting is rustic.  The cook is
responsible for shopping, organizing household supplies, laying out
breakfast, and preparing hot dinners for around 30 people.  We are looking
for someone who can prepare interesting (i.e., ethnic) and healthy (low
fat, lots of vegetables) meals, including options for both meat eaters and
vegetarians.  Occasional baking of treats is an added plus.  Salary is
$250-300/week, depending on experience.
