Iowa has more than eighteen thousand archaeological sites, and research in the past few decades has transformed our knowledge of the state's human past. Examining the projectile points, potsherds, and patterns that make up the archaeological record, Lynn Alex describes the nature of the earliest settlements in Iowa, the development of farming cultures, the role of the environment and environmental change, geomorphology and the burial of site, interaction among native societies, tribal affiliation of early historic groups, and the arrival and impact of Euro-Americans. In a final chapter, she examines the question of stewardship and the protection of Iowa's many archaeological resources.

Pottery Mound, New Mexico, was occupied from the late 14th century into the late 15th. It was first excavated, during the 1950s and 1960s, when ancestors of today's Pueblo peoples were not of much interest to most scholars, so the findings were not widely published nor the initial interpretations scrutinized and debated. Here scholars engaged in more recent excavations, and other involved in interpreting both new and old data, offer fresh insights.

This volume is a comprehensive, critical introduction to vertebrate zooarchaeology, the field that explores the history of human relations with animals from the Pliocene to the Industrial Revolution.​ The book is organized into five sections, each with an introduction, that leads the reader systematically through this swiftly expanding field. Section One presents a general introduction to zooarchaeology, key definitions, and an historical survey of the emergence of zooarchaeology in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa, and introduces the conceptual approach taken in the book. This volume is designed to allow readers to integrate data from the book along with that acquired elsewhere within a coherent analytical framework. Most of its chapters take the form of critical “review articles,” providing a portal into both the classic and current literature and contextualizing these with original commentary. Summaries of findings are enhanced by profuse illustrations by the author and others.​

Prehistory In West Prescott Arizona

Excavations at seven sites in West Prescott, Arizona, provide new information on a poorly understood group. The results suggest a "pit house-figurine" population of the Prescott Culture who reinforced social identity through production of ceramic figurines in human and animal forms. Evidence indicates use of a range of local wild resources including large game, cultivation of maize and other domesticated plants, and trade in marine shell, Hohokam ceramics, and at least some of the Prescott Gray Ware pottery that is associated with this culture.
