GIUSEWA: Laurens C. Hammack’s 1965 Excavations for the Visitor Center Water Line at Jemez Historic Site, Sandoval County, New Mexico
Throughout the last century Jemez Historic Site’s Giusewa Pueblo has been excavated by numerous archaeologists. Collections in Santa Fe are full of pottery, flaked stone and other archaeological artifacts recovered. However very few research reports discuss Giusewa in any great detail, and very little has been published. Now just over 50 years after Lauren Hammack’s work, the archaeological investigations are beginning to see the light of day. Giusewa is a place where history happened. Wiseman explores this historical narrative through architecture and artifact revealing the distinct and complex nature of Jemez culture at a time of tremendous change brought on by the arrival of the Spanish.

The Casamero Community in the Red Mesa Valley of Northwestern New Mexico.
This special joint report by the Archaeological Society of New Mexico and the Bureau of Land Management focuses on the Casamero community, an Ancestral Pueblo settlement on the eastern edge of the Red Mesa Valley of west central New Mexico during the Bonito Phase (A.D. 900-1 150) The goal of this volume is to provide in a single record what was recovered from excavations and stabilization of the great house, the survey in the immediate area, and to evaluate the community’s role in the local region, as well as suggestions as to how this settlement related to Chaco Canyon during its florescence as was suggested by Vivian (1990) in his comprehensive study of the Pueblo occupation of the San Juan Basin.
