Introducing the Fremont (ASW 29-4) (PDF)

Issue editor: James R. Allison

“Fremont” is a label archaeologists use for the northern contemporaries of Ancestral Pueblo people. Fremont peoples lived mostly in what is now the state of Utah, in the eastern Great Basin and on the northern Colorado Plateau. Their range extended slightly beyond the modern borders of Utah. Fremont peoples across this region shared styles of pottery, architecture, rock art, figurines, and moccasins. Despite broad similarities across the region, Fremont peoples were not a homogeneous cultural group. In this issue of Archaeology Southwest Magazine, authors briefly review what is known about the Fremont and share recent research on Fremont lifeways.
