"In 1963 Eugene McCluney excavated a portion of the pueblo and wrote a preliminary report.

"This volume contains the 1963 report, plus all subsequent work. Analysis topics include plant remains, human skeletal material, ball courts and ritual performance, archaeomagnetic dating, and Animas Phase and Paquime comparisons.

Behavioral archaeology : principles and practice by Michael B Schiffer( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 148 libraries worldwide
This book is a synthesis of the fundamental method and theory of behavioral archaeology, organized in terms of the temporal order in which general topics have been addressed. The development of key ideas is recounted in relation to the historical contexts in which they emerged. Among the major topics addressed are philosophy of science and the scientific method, artifacts and human behavior, archaeological inference, formation processes of the archaeological record, technological change, behavioral change, and human communication. Case studies make clear the relevance of behavioral method and theory for the everyday practice of archaeology. Not only has behavioral archaeology successfully elucidated the nature of archaeological inference and demonstrated the importance of dealing with formation processes in every aspect of archaeological research, but it also furnishes a highly original approach for studying and explaining behavioral and technological change. The main message of the book is that behavioral archaeology, which privileges the study of people-artifact interactions at every scale, furnishes a coherent, mature, and still-developing program for conducting archaeological research in any society, past or present
