“Leaving Mesa Verde”
Dr. William Lipe, Professor Emeritus at Washington State University, is an archaeologist with expertise in the North America Southwest. In this lecture, he will consider one of the most enduring questions in Southwestern archaeology: why many thousands of Pueblo people left the Four Corners region in the late AD 1200s, moving away from an area where their ancestors had lived for many centuries. This presentation reviews recent research that sheds new light on climatic and cultural factors that may have influenced the migrations, where the migrants eventually settled, and what social and cultural changes accompanied their relocation.
