If you had traveled from one community to another inthe prehistoric Southwest, you would have observedtremendous diversity in how people looked and spoke.This volume is the first to look at how prehistoricpeople's appearance and speech conveyed their identities.Southwest archaeologists have previously studied identityusing architecture, ceramics, textiles, and jewelry. Thiscolorful book uses a holistic, comparative approach toconsider all aspects of appearance. Advocating a peoplecenteredperspective for studying the past, Neitzel andher colleagues show how these characteristics conveyedinformation about an individual's social status, culturalaffiliation, inter-group connections, religious beliefs, andceremonial roles.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Fills a niche of intelligent books about archaeology understandable by students and non-archaeologists. The only other books of this sort are those that simply describe some kind of material culture (sandals or jewelry); this book is refreshingly different because it draws together several lines of evidence and makes sense of them.
Michelle Hegmon, professor of anthropology, Arizona State University"


This is the first broad-based comparison that focuses on these particular perspectives how the ancient people of the Southwest looked and talked at different points in time. There is plenty of food for thought in all of the chapters.
Catherine S. Fowler, Foundation Professor Emerita, Anthropology, University of Nevada, Reno
