Archaeology Southwest Magazine Vol. 35, No. 1 & 2

Issue editors: Katelyn J. Bishop and Christopher W. Schwartz

Fifteen years have passed since Archaeology Southwest Magazine released one of its most popular issues, “Birds in the Southwest.” Since then, much has changed in avian archaeology in the United States Southwest and Mexican Northwest—new theoretical perspectives, methodological advances, and a florescence of diverse voices and views.

What has not changed is our collective captivation with birds. In this issue, we offer readers a state-of-the-field view of bird research in the region.
