Foragers and Farmers of the Northern Kayenta Region presents the results of a major archaeological excavation project on Navajo tribal land in the Four Corners area and integrates this new information with existing knowledge of the archaeology of the northern Kayenta region. The excavation of thirty-three sites provides a cross section of prehistory from which Navajo Nation archaeologists retrieved a wealth of information about subsistence, settlement, architecture, and other aspects of past lifeways. The project's most important contributions involve the Basketmaker and Archaic periods, and include a large number of radiocarbon dates on high-quality samples. Dating back to the early Archaic period (ca. 7000 BC) and ranging forward through the Basketmaker components to the Puebloan period, this volume is a powerful record of ancient peoples and their cultures. Detailed supplementary data will be available on the University of Utah Press Web site upon publication of this summary volume.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Provides by far the best data available so far on the chronology of Archaic and Basketmaker II occupations in the Four Corners area."--William D. Lipe, Washington State University


"A tour de force."--Don D. Fowler, author of A Laboratory for Anthropology


"An engaging and data-intense book. I was impressed with Geib's ability to compress the results and interpretations from a complicated, large, data recovery project reported in multiple volumes into a single, well-written, and organized text."--Kiva: The Southwest Journal of Anthropology and History
"An outstanding addition to the growing body of archaeological knowledge of the Kayenta region of northern Arizona and southern Utah. The synopsis of the excavations and laboratory analyses of materials from 34 sites provides concise, yet rich, descriptions accompanied by excellent cartography. Geib has achieved a remakably effective synthesis of a large body of new archeaeological data with attention to current research topics. Moreover, the work sheds light on a remote and relatively little-known portion of the northern Southwest."--Journal of Anthropological Research
"This volume is an impressive demonstration of the potential of Cultural Resource Management (CRM) projects to make important contributions to basic archaeological research and of how project results should be disseminated. Overall this monograph and the associated online volumes are major sources not just on the archaeology of this region, but for the anthropological study of southwestern and more generally pre-agricultural Archaic societies, of the adoption of agriculture, and of the development of prev-village communities."--New Mexico Historical Review
