Paul E. Minnis – “Mimbres and Paquime Relationships?” (via Zoom)

July 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A zoom invitation to this lecture will be forwarded to members
The Mimbres of southwestern New Mexico and Paquime in northwestern Chihuahua are near each other with Mimbres ending around the time Paquime’s rises to prominence. Not surprisingly, some have suggested a close relationship between the two with much of the Paquime population being displaced Mimbrenos. Paul Minnis, perhaps the only archaeologists to have worked extensively in both regions, discusses what he sees as the relationships. But first we need to  consider how differences in the archaeology of the American Southwest and northwestern Mexico affect archaeological interpretations.
