Still High on Pueblo Alto: Tom Windes’ Mounds of Accomplishment

Author(s): H. Toll

Year: 2015


Among Tom Windes’ huge list of accomplishments in archaeology, his work at Chaco Canyon and Pueblo Alto is especially noteworthy. The lasting nature of this contribution is clear in that Pueblo Alto and mounds at Greathouses continue to be discussed and interpreted. This paper further considers the Pueblo Alto mound stratigraphy and the use and occupation of the pueblo in the context of recent discussions of these data. The discussion ranges from the very specific to more general implications. Pueblo Alto and its mound were essential elements of the Chaco landscape and remain so to our efforts to understand it.
