Mogollon Culture in the Forestdale Valley, East-Central Arizona
Classic site reports establish the Mogollon on their own cultural track distinct from the Anasazi and also document the earliest known association of tree-ring dates with pottery in the Southwest. The excavations of Mogollon sites reported on in this volume were conducted at the early (1939–1941) field schools in Forestdale, Arizona.
“Although the terms and models used by archaeologists have changed in the last twenty years, questions of group interaction and cultural boundaries are still very much at issue today.”—Kiva
“The importance of this volume . . . is in its significance for understanding Mogollon prehistory. In this context, Haury’s insights into the historical developments that led to the original formulation of the Mogollon concept are especially instructive. . . . Haury presents excellent physiographic, environmental, and land-form discussions that place the archaeology in context.”—Journal of Arizona History
