Foragers & Farmers of the Northern Kayenta Region presents the results of a major archaeological excavation project on Navajo tribal l& in the Four Corners area & integrates this new information with existing knowledge of the archaeology of the northern Kayenta region.
The excavation of thirty-three sites provides a cross section of prehistory from which Navajo Nation archaeologists retrieved a wealth of information about subsistence, settlement, architecture, & other aspects of past lifeways. The project's most important contributions involve the Basketmaker & Archaic periods, & include a large number of radiocarbon dates on high-quality samples. Dating back to the early Archaic period (ca. 7000 BC) & ranging forward through the Basketmaker components to the Puebloan period, this volume is a powerful record of ancient peoples & their cultures. Detailed supplementary data will be available on the University of Utah Press Web site upon publication of this summary volume.
