Abstract:

This book contains reprints of three essays by Jesse Walter Fewkes (1850-1930) on the pottery of the prehistoric Mimbres Indians. The three papers were originally published by the Smithsonian Institution between 1914 and 1924. The first, "Archeology of the Lower Mimbres Valley, New Mexico," examines historical references to ancient Indian settlements in the valley and provides detailed descriptions of some ruins along the Mimbres River, including grave sites, pottery, mortars, stone implements, and pictographs. Mimbres pottery, architecture, and burial practices are compared with those of ancient Indians in other parts of the Southwest. The essay concludes that changes in the river's course resulted in a shifting prehistoric population. The second essay, "Designs on Prehistoric Pottery from the Mimbres Valley, New Mexico," depicts the salient physical features of the valley and the ancient pottery discovered there. Pieces of pottery and their designs, largely animals and geometric figures, are described in detail. Evidence that Mimbres pottery was not confined to the valley is discusssed. The third essay, "Additional Designs on Prehistoric Mimbres Pottery," published in 1924, describes materials examined subsequent to the previous articles. While the designs described in this paper add to existing information, they do not materially change the conclusions of the previous essays. Drawings and photographs illustrate the pottery designs, and a map of the archaeologically rich region is included. This book includes numerous pottery designs and a map of Mimbres Valley. (TES).
