Fire, Ash and Sanctuary: Pyrotechnology as Protection in the Pre-Colonial Northern Rio Grande
Author(s): Michael Adler
Ash deposits are commonly associated with site disuse and termination deposits across the Ancestral Pueblo region of the American Southwest. This paper contextualizes the use of fire, and fire-related products, as part of a larger suite of practices employed to protect past, present and future occupants of villages from malevolent "others" across the pre-colonial northern Rio Grande region.
