Archaeology and History Books

Selected List:

As you can probably tell, archaeology is a passion of mine. Gwinn Vivian, "Mr. Anasazi", wrote two of the texts below.  He's a second generation Anasazi archeologist who was the head of the department at the University of Arizona in Tucson until a couple of years ago.  Excellent reading materials which provide invaluable insights into a culture that has evolved into today's Puebloans of New Mexico and Arizona.  They live on Black Mesa, in Taos, Zuni and Acoma to name a few notables and use the old traditions  from thousands of years ago.  Read The Basket Dance at Old Oraibi for an inside view.
