Unlocking Clues to Life in the Middle San Juan Pueblos

May 31, 2019

Ruined great houses, corn kernels and bones—these are just some of the archeological fragments that have offered researchers new insights into how Middle San Juan Puebloan peoples lived in the 12th and 13th centuries.

Featured earlier this year in the Santa Fe New Mexican’s Pasatiempo, the book Aztec, Salmon, and the Puebloan Heartland of the Middle San Juan covers these topics and more as eleven contributing writers examine new evidence that helps shed light on the settlements. The book is the latest in the Popular Archaeology series from SAR Press, dedicated to highlighting important topics in anthropology, indigenous arts, and the American Southwest.

Click here to read the Pasatiempo article.

Visit https://sarweb.org/middle-san-juan/ for more information about Aztec, Salmon, and the Puebloan Heartland of the Middle San Juan, edited by Paul F. Reed and Gary M. Brown.

Hear from the editors on Monday, June 24, 2019, at the Hotel Santa Fe as part of the Southwest Seminars 2019 lecture series.
