RECOGNIZING PEOPLE OF THE PREHISTORIC SOUTHWEST. Jill Neitzel. University of Utah Press, Salt Lake City, 2016. 288 pp. with 113 ills. 25 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781607815297 In English.
Publisher's description: In the prehistoric Southwest, if you traveled from one community to another, you would have observed tremendous diversity in how people looked and spoke. This volume is the first to look at how prehistoric people's appearance and speech conveyed their identities. Previously, Southwest archaeologists have studied identity using architecture, ceramics, textiles, and jewelry. This book uses a holistic, comparative approach to consider all aspects of appearance. Advocating a people-centered perspective for studying the past, Neitzel and her colleagues show how these characteristics conveyed information about an individual's social status, cultural affiliation, inter-group connections, religious beliefs, and ceremonial roles.
