Animas-La Plata Project Volume XVI

SWCA Environmental Consultants

This volume of the Animas-La Plata series (SWCA Anthropological Research Paper No. 10) contains nineteen chapters and two appendixes that summarize the results of the Animas-La Plata Project. This volume has four objectives. The first is to address the research questions posed in the research design. The second is to provide a stand-alone summary of the project results for the scientific community and other interested readers. Third, this volume summarizes the conclusions of other ALP project reports and directs the reader to those reports for additional, more detailed information on specific research topics. The final goal is to present new ideas and insights concerning the archaeological record of the project area based on the new information generated by the project.

It opens up a new window on the past by shifting the focus away from the rise and fall of ancient civilizations to their often more telling fall and rise.
