Announcing the 2017 Linda S. Cordell Prize Winner
Dr. Scott G. Ortman has been awarded the 2017 Linda S. Cordell Prize for his book, Winds from the North: Tewa Origins and Historical Archaeology. Drawing together research from archaeology, linguistics, cognitive psychology, physical anthropology, ethnology, and Pueblo traditional histories Ortman’s book addresses a long-standing question in Southwestern archaeology: what happened to the 13th-century inhabitants of the Mesa Verde region?
The School for Advanced Research will hold a reception during the 2017 SAA conference to present Dr. Ortman with a $5,000 check and commemorative plaque.
Congratulations, Dr. Ortman!
