Ordinary, yet Distinct (ASW 29-1) (Hardcopy)

Issue editor: Lewis Borck and J. Michael Bremer

The heartland of the Gallina region includes some of the least known and most rugged backcountry in northern New Mexico. From the early 1100s to the late 1200s, this forbidding landscape was home to a population of Ancestral Pueblo people. Although these inhabitants left dense and obvious evidence of settlement, archaeologists are still—even after almost a century of research—trying to understand the origin and demise of those populations, as well as changes that occurred over the nearly 200 years they lived in the region. Fortunately, there has been a revival of interest in the area since the 1980s, including a recent surge in research addressing many of the topics discussed in this issue.
