EMAP (1996) Regional, Social, and Economic reorganization The Mimbres

Part of the EMAP - Reports project

Year: 1996


The North American Southwest is an excellent landscape for the study of small scale societies. Sites

are visible and well preserved as a result of the aridity and limited modern development in most regions. This aridity, however, posed challenges to prehistoric societies. Our research in the eastern Mimbres area of southwestern New Mexico examines prehistoric land use, challenging some of the basic assumptions that have guided understanding of Mimbres prehistory and the strategies of small scale societies in adapting to arid landscapes.
