Drawing from over a century of archaeological research, including groundbreaking new discoveries from recent excavations, the author presents a thorough examination of Santa Fe's pre-Hispanic past over 12,000 years, from the arrival of the earliest Paleoindians, Pueblo occupation, up to the Spanish Entrada and the official establishment of the city in 1610. The book explores Santa Fe's rich layers through archaeological artifacts and other evidence that tell the story of the culture and peoples who lived, worked, prospered, and died in Santa Fe over the course of this long and varied period.
