Zooarchaeology of Six Prehistoric Sites in the Sierra Blanca Region, New Mexico

Jonathan C. Driver

In this volume, Jonathan C. Driver presents the results of his study of faunal remains that represent several prehistoric communities in the Sacramento Mountain area and document the range and proportions of hunted foods in the diet of these communities. Driver’s work complements one of the most important works on the prehistory of this region: Jane Holden Kelley’s The Archaeology of the Sierra Blanca Region of Southeastern New Mexico (1984). Kelley was not able to include a detailed analysis of faunal remains in her monumental work, but the animal bones from the sites she excavated were carefully curated. It is this collection that Driver analyzed.
