Description

The origins of the Northern Rio Grande Pueblos and the collapse of Mesa Verde society represent two iconic episodes in American Archaeology, despite a century of research, there is still no consensus on how, or even if, these two events are related. In this talk, Scott Ortman discusses his award-winning research, combining human biology, linguistics, archaeology and cultural anthropology to build a new understanding of this remarkable period in the Southwest.
