Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Galisteo Basin of northern New Mexico has been a staple of archaeological research since it was first studied almost a century ago. This first book on the area since 1914 lays out an overview of the area, with research provided by the Tano Origins Project and funded by the National Science Foundation.

This volume covers the regions history (including the Burnt Corn Pueblo, Petroglyph Hill, and Lodestar sites) during the Coalition Period (AD 1200-1300). Including chapters on architecture, ceramics, tree-ring samples, groundstone, and rock art, the book also addresses the stress that development has placed on the future of research in the area.

Book News Annotation:

The Galisteo Basin in northern New Mexico is one of the most celebrated archaeological districts in the American Southwest. In eight studies, archaeologists summarize the current fieldwork so that others in the profession can apply the findings to larger concerns within the region's history. Burnt Corn Pueblo was one of the principal villages of the late 13th century, and the Tano Origins Project focused on it to investigate the critical juncture between the early phase of Pueblo settlement and the dramatic growth of the large, late communities encountered by Spaniards.
