The San Juan Basin Archaeological Society... exploring, learning about, and
Next SJBAS Meeting
Thursday, October 8th
Fort Lewis College
Our next SJBAS meeting will
be held Thursday, October 8th,
at 7:00 p.m. in the Lyceum at the Center of
Southwest Studies at FLC.
Our speaker will be Dr. Tim Maxwell, presenting
"The Place In Between: Casas Grandes, the U.S.
Southwest and Mesoamerica ".
The prehistoric town of Paquimé, in the Casas Grandes region of northern Chihuahua, was the center of the largest trade network in the Southwest. Many explanations have been offered on the size of the network, who controlled it, and its disappearance. The Mexican states of Chihuahua, Durango, and Zacatecas lie between the complex cultures of Mesoamerica and the pueblo world of the U.S. Southwest. Did Mesoamerican societies influence the people in these remote, largely desert regions? Were the pueblo people of New Mexico and Arizona affected by Mesoamerica? The nature of the relationship will be explored.
Tim Maxwell, Ph.D., is director emeritus of the Museum of New Mexico, Office of Archaeological Studies. He has worked in Southwest Archaeology for almost 40 years and in northern Mexico for 15 years. He has been a Fulbright scholar and is currently involved with historic preservation organizations in Santa Fe.
