About the Author

More About the Author

Patricia L. Crown received her A.B. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1974, and her PhD in Anthropology from the University of Arizona in 1981. She held teaching positions at Southern Methodist University and Arizona State University, and has been on the faculty at the University of New Mexico since 1993, where she is a Distinguished Professor of Anthropology. Dr. Crown has conducted field investigations in the Ancestral Pueblo, Mogollon, and Hohokam areas of the American Southwest; she recently directed the analysis of artifacts from the trash mounds at Pueblo Bonito, Chaco Canyon. One result of this research was the recent identification of the first prehispanic cacao (chocolate) north of the Mexican border in ceramics from Chaco Canyon. The Society for American Archaeology awarded her the Excellence in Ceramic Research Award in 1994, and the American Anthropological Association gave her (jointly with Suzanne K. Fish) the Gordon Willey Award in 1998. Her books have included three co-edited volumes, Chaco and Hohokam (SAR Press), Social Violence in the Prehispanic Southwest (University of Arizona Press) and Ceramic Production in the American Southwest (University of Arizona Press), the single-authored, Ceramics and Ideology: Salado Polychrome Pottery (University of New Mexico Press), and an edited volume Women and Men in the Prehispanic Southwest: Labor, Power, and Prestige (School of American Research Press).

Format: Hardcover
Despite the catchy title, this book is primarily a scholarly work written for archaeologists and not for the general public. However, anyone with some archaeological background (several undergraduate courses, or a similar level of familiarity with archaeological literature for the U.S. Southwest) and a strong interest in the area will get a lot out of it. It was published in 1991 but has become a classic, often recommended as supplemental background reading for graduate courses and ending up on most student reading lists for candidacy exams.

The author captured the history of those early Americans in the soutwest USA - having worked archaeology sites in Chaco outliers, this brings home more of what we were doing. Thank you.

Good collection of papers on regional interaction between Hohokam and Chaco. Somewhat dated now (1991), but there are still some good ideas and useful info from Judge, Lekson, and other Southwestern archaeologists.
