Aspects of Land Tenure in an Ancient Southwestern Farming Society in the Mimbres Valley, New Mexico (2003)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Robert Stokes.

This dissertation research focuses on the development of new communities in areas outside of the main Mimbres River Valley during the Classic period, ca. 1000-1150. Based on a review of ethnohistoric farming societies living in marginal areas, a model was developed for understanding when and under what conditions landless groups of people form in established communities and the decisions they then make for survival, including moving into empty, but marginal, agricultural zones and establishing...

A Resurgence of Pothunting and Bulldozing Mimbres Sites on Private and Federal Lands in Southwestern New Mexico (2006)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Robert Stokes.

Much to the dismay of the archaeological community, a resurgence of pothunting is occurring across southwestern New Mexico on private and federal lands. The scale of pothunting ranges from shovel probes to bulldozing. Federal and state laws enacted since 1989 served to slow pothunting, especially the destruction caused by bulldozers, but the pendulum is now swinging back towards increased activity. Recent examples of these activities will be discussed and possible reasons for this resurgence...

Southwest Mortuary Database Project: 2011 SAA E-Session: Mortuary Practices in the American Southwest: Meta-Data Issues in the Development of a Regional Database
PROJECT Gordon Rakita. M Scott Thompson.

The study of prehistoric mortuary practices in the American Southwest is undergoing tremendous change in the new millennium. The challenges (and opportunities) of NAGPRA implementation, declines in the number of large samples being excavated, and loss of data from previously excavated samples have altered mortuary archaeology in the region. Given this state of affairs, the development of an integrated regional database of prehistoric mortuary practices is imperative. This session at the 76th...
