"This book was written and illustrated for a general audience as a companion volume to Ancient Paquimé and the Casas Grandes World (University of Arizona Press, 2015), and features the same list of contributing authors. The chapters have been rewritten for lay readers interested in the Casas Grandes site and area. From the introduction: "Each section of this book summarizes recent research that expands our understanding and appreciation of Paquimé, its region, and its role in the prehistory of the SW/NW. A more detailed technical volume, Ancient Paquimé and the Casas Grandes World, is for those who want to read further. These two publications follow in the path-breaking organization of the eight-volume JCGE report, Casas Grandes: A Fallen Trading Center of the Gran Chichimeca. Like the first three volumes of the JCGE report, this book is an easily accessible summary. The last five volumes of the JCGE report provide more detailed documentation and tabular summaries of data, a tradition we emulate in Ancient Paquimé and the Casas Grandes World"--Provided by publisher.

This catalogue -- published to coincide with an exhibition at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture -- explores the acclaimed ceramic traditions of the largest pre-Columbian civilisation in northern Mexico. Casas Grandes, located in present-day Chihuahua, was a major regional centre during the thirteen and fourteenth centuries that blended elements of the Pueblo culture to the north and Mesoamerican civilisations to the south. Leading archaeologists discuss the geometric polychrome vessels, representational pots, and effigy pots that display a spectacular ceramic artistry, and give rare insight into an ancient culture just beginning to receive its archaeological due.
