Children in the Prehistoric Puebloan Southwest (Paperback)Kathryn A. Kamp (editor)
- We can order this
Focusing on the Southwest, contributors to this volume attempt to find some of those children, or at least show how they might be found. They address two issues: what was the cultural construction of childhood? What were childrens' lives like?
Determining how cultures with written records have constructed childhood in the past is hard enough, but the difficulty is magnified in the case of ancient Puebloan societies. The contributors here offer approaches from careful analysis of artifacts and skeletal remains to ethnographic evidence in rock art. Topics include ceramics and evidence of child manufacture and painting, cradleboards, evidence of child labour, and osteological evidence of health conditions.

"The study of children has previously received almost no attention by archaeologists. This book will break new ground, and it will be significant."--Michelle Hegmon, Arizona State University
