Summary This collection of 13 documents discusses the Basketmaker tradition in the Four Corner's region (northeastern Arizona, southwestern Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, and southeastern Utah) in the United States from around 3500 BP-1250 BP (1500 BC- AD 750). Two documents provide overviews of the Basketmaker tradition. One the best places to start is Blackburn and Williamson because they describe efforts by avocational archaeologists to relocate the original 1890s Wetherill excavations. Matson (1991) describes his own work on Cedar Mesa and also provides a cultural summary of Basketmaker culture. Several documents are articles from an issue of the journal, Kiva, which was devoted to research on Basketmaker II. Two articles describe the authors' findings from excavated sites: Old Man Cave, Lukachukai, and Salina Springs. Other topics covered include maize, settlement patterns, rock art, and the spread of agriculture in the Southwest. The final document by Gumerman and Dean examines the Basketmaker II-III archaeological record to explain the Anasazi society.
