December 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm MST

AIA Society: Boulder

This lecture will discuss how Pueblo people dealt with the Spanish introduction of wheat and livestock into the agricultural economy of early colonial New Mexico. Davis will share the results of research conducted on the agricultural areas around four pueblo sites. Analyzing the changes in the location, type, size, and density of the agricultural features, as well as the changes in crop growth revealed by the soil testing, enables a better understanding of Pueblo adaptations over time and the extent to which Spanish plants, animals, and agricultural practices were incorporated into Pueblo life.
