The 2009 PADO field season ran from June 8 to June 29 and the 2011 PADO field season extended from July 5 to July 25. Both were carried out by William McFarlane and Miranda Suri, along with 4 field school students from Johnson County Community College in 2009 and 9 students in 2011. The goals and objectives of both seasons of work, as well as a discussion of our methodologies and results, are described in this report. These seasons represent our third and fourth formal field seasons. Our primary goal over the course of both seasons was to complete small-scale excavations at the site of Sinsimbla, assess chronological and functional relationships among different components of the site, and begin to develop a ceramic sequence for the Jesús de Otoro valley.
