These fifteen essays inventory and evaluate the cultural resources discovered at the Star Lake Archaeological Research Project in northwestern New Mexico. Commissioned by the Peabody Coal Company to evaluate resources in a strip-mining area, the project turned up remains from the preceramic, Anasazi, and historic periods.
The book is divided into three parts, the first of which provides background, with essays by Walter Wait and Neal Lopinot. Part two presents chapters by Wait, Joseph K. Anderson, and Terry J. Powell. Part three contains five chapters dealing with the Anasazi period written by Wait, Terry Klein, Anna Pauline Fondaw, David Barde, and Fred York.
This book is designed as a text in courses dealing with contract archaeology, with the application of archaeological method and theory, and with archaeological field techniques. The essays show archaeologists applying some of the newest methods and theoretical techniques, not in an academic setting, but on the job where they worked as archaeologists. In Wait’s terms the book utters a challenge: Be imaginative, be creative, be archaeologists.”
