John R. Roney & Robert J. Hard – “Early Agriculture and Collective Action in the Southern Southwest”

March 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST

This lecture will be presented on zoom by AAHS@Home. It is open to the public but preregistration is required. As far as we know, corn was the earliest cultivated plant in the Southwest.  It was introduced from further south in Mexico no later than 2100 BC, and perhaps much earlier.  By 2000 BC it was widely dispersed in the Southwest, and for several millennia afterwards it seems to have been grown casually by people who continued to follow lifeways largely…

Lisa Young – “Sharing an Ear of Corn: An Archaeologist’s Perspective on the Role of Food in Community Collaborations”

Myles Miller – Five Millennia of Living on the Landscapes of the Jornada Mogollon Region of Southern New Mexico and West Texas

July 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST

Four decades of archaeological research in the Jornada Mogollon region of southern New Mexico and far west Texas has revealed a rich record of past lifeways. Due to its marginal location and misperception that the archaeology of the region consists mainly of non-architectural hunter-gatherer sites, the prehistory of the region is often viewed as peripheral to developments in better-known and more archeologically visible culture areas of the US Southwest and Mexican Northwest (SW/NW).  Recent research has negated such outdated views,…
