The Faunal Remains From Arroyo Hondo Pueblo New Mexico. In studying the animal bones from Arroyo Hondo Pueblo, Lang and Harris had an advantage unknown to most faunal analysts: a collection so large and a site so well dated that the bones could be divided chronologically ordered samples. By comparing these samples, they could identify short-term changes in the natural environment and in human economic practices throughout Arroyo Hondo's history. This book presents the results of their analysis, covering the topics of prehistoric vegetation and climate; the importance of various animals in the diet; seasonal hunting patterns; methods of butchering, skinning and cooking; the prehistoric hunting territory; the raising of domesticated dogs and turkeys; and trade in animals and animal products. An appendix gives the raw data for each chronological sample.Three additional reports are included in this volume. First Marshall A. Beach and Chistopher S. Causey describe the bone artifacts found at Arroyo Hondo, discuss their distribution, and compare them with artifacts from nearby sites. Second, the shell artifacts are are described by Tamsin Venn, who also examines shell trade routes in the Southwest. Finally, Richard W. Lang discusses the artifacts of hide fur, and feathers that accompanied human burials at Arroyo Hondo Pueblo.

Archaeology Of Bandelier National Monument. The pre-Hispanic pueblo settlements of the Pajarito Plateau, whose ruins can be seen today at Bandelier National Monument, date to the late 1100s and were already dying out when the Spanish arrived in the sixteenth century. Until recently, little modern scientific data on these sites was available. The essays in this volume summarize the results of new excavation and survey research in Bandelier, with special attention to determining why larger sites appear when and where they do, and how life in these later villages and towns differed from life in the earlier small hamlets that first dotted the Pajarito in the mid-1100s. Drawing on sources from archaeology, paleoethnobotany, geology, climate history, rock art, and oral history, the authors weave together the history of archaeology on the Plateau and the natural and cultural history of its Puebloan peoples for the four centuries of its pre-Hispanic occupation. Contributors include Craig Allen (U. S. Geological Survey, Los Alamos, New Mexico), Sarah Herr (Desert Archaeology, Inc., Tucson, Arizona), F. Joan Mathien (National Park Service), Matthew J. Root (Rain Shadow Research and Department of Anthropology, Washington Sate University), Nancy H. Olsen (Anthropology Department and Intercultural Studies Division, De Anza College, Cupertino, California), Janet D. Orcutt (National Park Service), and Robert P. Powers (National Park Service).

New Perspectives On Pottery Mound Pueblo. Pottery Mound, New Mexico, was occupied from the late 14th century into the late 15th. It was first excavated, during the 1950s and 1960s, when ancestors of today's Pueblo peoples were not of much interest to most scholars, so the findings were not widely published nor the initial interpretations scrutinized and debated. Here scholars engaged in more recent excavations, and other involved in interpreting both new and old data, offer fresh insights.

Farmers As Hunters. Farmers as hunters analyses from an essentially ethnographic perspective the role of hunters in small-scale farming societies. The twelve contributors examine the effects of hunting and mobility on behaviour, diet, economy and material culture at both culture-specific and cross-cultural levels. The influence of sedentism and the increasing use of domesticates is also explored across a wide range of societies from the American southwest and Amazonian to Africa, New Guinea and the Phillipines. Differing perceptions of the status of animals and plants are reviewed and cultural values are throughout given due weight in a field where discussion too often verges on the economically deterministic.
