Fremont is a culture (ca. 300–1300 A.D.) first defined by archaeologist Noel Morss in 1928 based on characteristics unique to the area. Initially thought to be a simple socio-political system, recent reassessments of the Fremont assume a more complex society. This volume places Fremont rock art studies in this contemporary context. Author Steven Simms offers an innovative model of Fremont society, politics, and worldview using the principles of analogy and current archaeological evidence. Simms takes readers on a trip back in time by describing what a typical Fremont hamlet or residential area might have looked like a thousand years ago, including the inhabitants' daily activities. François Gohier's captivating photographs of Fremont art and artifacts offer an engaging complement to Simms's text, aiding us in our understanding of the lives of these ancient people.

Winner of the Utah Book Award in Nonfiction.
Winner of the Society for American Archaeology Book Award for Public Audience.

Review:

"Together, Simms and Gohier take readers back in time."—Deseret News

"Simms's book is excellent! I really like his take on Fremont, I like the narrative descriptions of various Fremont settlements, and I like his treatment of rock art balanced and scholarly without losing the interest and excitement of that astonishing Fremont medium."—Stephen H. Lekson, professor of anthropology and curator, University of Colorado Museum of Natural History


"An interesting read as well as a visual treat."—Utah Historical Quarterly

"Simms commendably presents complex debates in contemporary archaeology about Fremont society, far exceeding the usual descriptive and simple theorizing fare that characterizes much popular archaeological literature. The book is beautifully illustrated with stunning photography of Fremont material culture and rock art, complemented by text that lucidly outlines a model of Fremont society and origins that Simms has been developing over the years, making the book also relevant to professional archaeologists."—New Mexico Historical Review
