Destruction of Stored Food in Pre-Contact Northern Rio Grande Pueblo Communities: Food for Thought
Author(s): Michael Adler
Past archaeological interpretations of site destruction and the elimination of associated food resources, namely through burning, focus largely on conflict-based models of village warfare. This paper considers the role that food-related issues, particularly food-related toxins, might also have played in the destruction of food resources and relocation of village populations during the late pre-contact (AD 1200-1540) period in the Northern Rio Grande region.
