Pueblos: Prehistoric Indian Cultures of the Southwest

Archaeologists have now identified three main Pueblo cultures - the Hohokam, Mogollon and Anasazi - whose civilizations peaked in the 13th century and mysteriously vanished before the arrival of the Europeans in the 1500s. "Pueblos" traces their remarkable development by looking at the following aspects of their lifestyles: changes in architecture - the building of early pit houses to the later development of complexes perched on canyon walls; arts and crafts - the fashioning of tools, weapons and intricate jewellery out of raw materials, and the unsurpassed beauty of pueblo basketry, pottery and petroglyphs; and rituals and practices - farming methods, trading systems and burial and religious practices that were part of everyday life. Also featured is the rediscovery of ancient ruins by archaeologists just over 100 years ago, and a list of sites in the southwest where descendents of these ancient cultures live and work today.
