Investigations at Ojo Bonito: The 1988 Arizona State University Summer Field School

Author(s): Todd Howell

Year: 1988

Summary

The 1988 Arizona State University Archaeological Field School under the direction of Dr. Keith Kintiqh was held at the privately-owned Hinkson ranch just southwest of the Zuni Indian Reservation. The Hinkson ranch holds qreat research potential because of a dense prehistoric occupation (primarily Pueblo II & III) that has been relatively undisturbed by pothuntinq or other destructive processes.

If the great house and great kiva of the Hinkson Complex were built and occupied after the collapse of Chaco as we currently believe, then it appears that the level of cultural complexity in the Zuni area is much greater than had been previously thought for this time period. Our excavations at the Hinkson Complex have served to confirm and elaborate maior aspects of the Manuelito model of post-Chaco development proposed by Fowler, Stein, and Anyon.
