Then and Now: Conservative and Progressive Politics at the Mimbres Site of Swarts
This is an abstract from the "Journeying to the South, from Mimbres (New Mexico) to Malpaso (Zacatecas) and Beyond: Papers in Honor of Ben A. Nelson" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Social inequality exists simultaneously in a number of domains, and can often be traced - or allegedly traced - to founding lineages. Antecedence is the demonstration of longevity in place and, therefore, claims to moral authority. In this paper, we explore the intersection of antecedence and connectivity. Using data from the Mimbres site of Swarts, we demonstrate the ways in which two competing groups employed and manipulated their pasts and places through spatial separation, antecedence, social histories, and long-distance relationships.
