ASM MASTER CLASS: Clovis to Kino: Archaeology of the Southwest Borderlands
September 8, 15, 22, 29, 2021
10:00-11:30 a.m. Arizona time, via Zoom
a four-part series taught by Dr. James T. Watson, ASM associate director and curator of bioarchaeology
The desert Borderlands of the southwest US and northwest Mexico present a foreboding but ecologically diverse environment that supported human occupation as far back as the earliest Americans and led to the development of large precolonial civilizations characterized by some of the most complex irrigation systems in the New World. Today this area is substantially defined by the political border between Mexico and the United States. This class critically explores evidence from the archaeological record of the Borderlands to document human migrations and interactions, and behavioral and technological adaptations to thrive in this dynamic environment for centuries.
Session 1: Clovis to Cultigens
Session 2: Cultigens to the Classic Period
Session 3: Classic Period to Collapse
Session 4: Collapse to Kino
