Summary

This catalog refers to some 3,000 pages of historical documents microfilmed in Jano, Chihuahua, by the authors who were members of the 1954 Archaeological Expedition into Northwestern Chihuahua, sponsored by the Department of Anthropology and the University Museum of the University of Pennsylvania.

Janos is a small town of about 800 people located in the northwestern corner of the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. The town grew up around the Spanish presidio or garrison of San Felipe y Santiago de Janos which was founded about 1686 A.D. This Presidio was the first to be established in northern Chihuahua and was the principal defense against the Jano, Suma, Jocome and Apache Indian raids. The Mexican government maintained a garrison at Janos until 1957.
