On the Road Again: A Consideration of Travel Routes within the Late Fremont Regional System
Prehistoric travel routes were conduits of knowledge, goods, and people. Within regional systems they facilitated social integration and identity maintenance. This was true for Late Fremont period groups, who primarily occupied the rich river valleys of the northern Colorado Plateau and eastern Great Basin but who also spread across this vast region in smaller settlements. This paper focuses on identifying possible travel routes within the Late Fremont regional system. We consider how these travel routes, largely shaped by environmental and socioeconomic factors, influenced Fremont regional interaction.
