This book offers diverse perspectives on the state of South-western archaeology at the end of the twentieth century, linking the legacies of the past to present trends by placing current research into historical context.
Organised around classic themes central to the history of the discipline, this volume explores important new research avenues for understanding the connections between historic Pueblo communities and their distant ancestors, the origins of farming traditions, and the development of the Southwest's distinctive tools and technologies.
Providing a unique overview of past and present work in this important region, 'Traditions, Transitions, and Technologies' will be of interest to all doing archaeological research in the South-western United States.
