Author(s): Paul Secord
This is an abstract from the "Archaeology, Cultural Heritage, and Public Education at Tijeras Pueblo, New Mexico" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
How did the people of Tijeras Pueblo acquire and use non-lithic and non-ground stone mineral resources? What role did such resources play in communities in the region east of the Sandia and Manzano Mountains? Minerals addressed include turquoise, galena (lead ore), and various copper compounds. Prehistoric mining and processing sites, coupled with the use and trade of these minerals, will be covered.
