About this product
- DescriptionAn introduction to the history of the Puebloan Southwest from the AD 1000s to the sixteenth century, first published in 2004.
- Author BiographyJohn Kantner is the Vice President for Academic and Institutional Advancement at the School for Advanced Research and formerly an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Georgia State University. A native of New Mexico, he earned his BA from Colorado College and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara. His early research was on Spanish Colonial ethnohistory of the Southwest, and he has also conducted archaeological investigations in Costa Rica, the US Plains, and the US Rocky Mountains. Over the past several years, Dr Kantner's research has focused on the archaeology of the prehistoric Southwestern United States, with a particular interest in the development of sociopolitical complexity of the Chaco Anasazi. Dr Kantner currently directs the Lobo Mesa Archaeological Project, which focuses on prehistoric Anasazi groups who inhabited the Red Mesa Valley of northwestern New Mexico between AD 850 and 1200. The goal of this research is to identify the processes by which complex social and political regional institutions emerge from communities of comparatively simple horticulturists. Principles of human behavioral ecology and evolutionary theory provide the theoretical foundation for these investigations, while the analysis of prehistoric ceramics and regional spatial patterning provides the methodologies needed to interpret the archaeological remains. Publications by Dr Kantner can be found in Human Nature, the Journal of Anthropological Archaeology, the Journal of Archaeological Research and Historical Archaeology, and he coedited the 2000 book Great House Communities Across the Chacoan Landscape, published by the University of Arizona Press. Dr Kantner also continues his explorations of the use of new media both for enhancing public education and facilitating professional interaction.
