Settlement and Demography in the Greater Mimbres Region

Summary

The database presented here contains information on all major habitation sites and smaller habitation sites from major surveys across the most densely populated portions of the Mimbres region (Mimbres Valley, Eastern Mimbres area, and the Upper Gila). The database is relatively complete for sites that date between AD 1000 and 1450 but also includes limited information on major earlier components dating between AD 200-1000.
