Animas-La Plata Project Volume XV


Paperback ($50.00) Buy
Volume XV of the Animas–La Plata (ALP) series (SWCA Anthropological Research Paper No. 10) contains thirteen chapters and multiple appendixes by a multitude of authors. The introductory chapter presents the broad archaeological context of the ALP project, explains some of the terminology used in writing about the ALP skeletal remains, and briefly characterizes the nature of the assemblage with respect to basic demographics such as the age and sex distribution of the human remains recovered from the different ALP sites. The NAGP RA process is described, as is its influence on data collection.

The remainder of the volume presents the results of bioarchaeological data collection and analysis conducted by various analysts who address mortuary practice, paleodemography, skeletal and dental morphology, health indicators in adults and children, biological variation, and the ethnicity of the basin’s Pueblo I residents. The final two chapters document the methods employed in the processed human remains analysis from Sacred Ridge and present the results of a first analysis of these data.
