Organized by the theme of place and place-making in the
Southwest, Contemporary Archaeologies of the Southwest
emphasizes the method and theory for the study of radical changes
in religion, settlement patterns, and material culture associated
with population migration, colonialism, and climate change during
the last 1,000 years.
Chapters address place-making in Chaco Canyon, recent trends in
landscape archaeology, the formation of identities, landscape
boundaries, and the movement associated with these aspects of
place-making. They address how interaction of peoples with objects
brings landscapes to life. Representing a diverse cross section of
Southwestern archaeologists, the authors of this volume push the
boundaries of archaeological method and theory, building a strong
foundation for future Southwest studies.
This book will be of interest to professional and academic
archaeologists, as well as students working in the American
Subjects: Sociology, Archaeology
