Santa Fe Underground (ASW 29-2/3) (PDF)

Issue editors: Cherie L. Scheick and Stephen S. Post

Every city has history, but in Santa Fe, history surrounds us. It is a record not of 100 years, but of several thousand years. From the terraces above town to the river floodplain below, reminders of the city’s past inhabitants are woven into the fabric of Santa Fe. As the city expands and development continues, archaeologists uncover ever more evidence of the older center beneath it. In this issue of Archaeology Southwest Magazine, we hope to introduce readers to Santa Fe and its remarkable history.

40 pages.
