Prehistoric Settlement and Adaptation in the Ramah Valley, New Mexico

Author(s): Deborah M. Pearsall

Year: 1973


This paper will attempt to reconstruct the valley-wide systems of subsistence of six pueblos occupying a small valley in northwestern New Mexico around 1300 A.D. As any investigation of this nature must be, it is a hypothetical model, built using data rom a variety of sources, including archaeological excavation, settlement pattern analysis, ethnographic analogy, and the natural limitations of the environment.
