Grasshopper Pueblo. A Story of Archaeology and Ancient Life, by Jefferson Reid and Stephanie Whittlesey. University of Arizona Press, Tucson, 1999
Jonathan E. Reyman
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology , 2001, DOI: 10.5334/bha.11205
Abstract: Grasshopper Pueblo field school closed after the 1992 summer season. Its closing marked the end of a 30-year period of survey, excavation and analysis of archaeological sites and materials as well as student education. From 1963-1992, hundreds of students were trained in the field methods and analytical models and techniques of the New Archaeology as practiced at the University of Arizona under the direction of Raymond Thompson (1963-1965), William Longacre (1966-1978), and J. Jefferson Reid (1979-1992). By the end of the 1992 summer season, Grasshopper Pueblo was, perhaps, the most thoroughly studied archaeological site in the American Southwest. As the authors note, "Although large pueblos of the American Southwest have attracted archaeologists for more than a century ... Ancient life at these special places will never be understood with as much detail as we have for Grasshopper Pueblo". Much of the detail is reported in the many published papers, nine doctoral dissertations, and two masters' theses cited by the authors, and more reports are likely to follow. As a training ground for archaeologists, Grasshopper is probably comparable in impor-tance to the Chaco Canyon field schools and excavations of the 1920s- 194Os.
Bandelier: Behind and Beyond the Journals
Jonathan E. Reyman
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology , 1996, DOI: 10.5334/bha.06202
Abstract: Bandelier: The Life and Adventures of Adolph Bandelier, by Charles H. Lange and Carroll L. Riley, 1996 A surge in publication has accompanied the recent, renewed interest in the history of American anthropol-ogy, and the Bulletin is one manifestation of this. Another notable aspect is the publication of biographies and collections of biographical essays of late-19th through mid-20th century archaeologists and other anthropologists. One interesting and sometimes surprising aspect of this output of new biography is how much more we learn about those whom we thought we knew well. For example, I have read two, book-length biographies of Ruth Benedict and Alfred Kidder as well as several biographical essays. Nevertheless, new publications about these anthropologists, and others, continue to provide additional insights and greater understanding, even though they cover much the same basic data as· earlier works. Different perspectives often yield novel ideas and conclusions, and the discovery of new, biographical and other historical data frequently requires a major reassesesment and revision of both the biography and general history. Furthermore, my own experi-ence (Reyman n.d.) suggests that, when we write biography, we also learn much about ourselves and pro-vide readers with insights about us (often unintentionally), as well as about our subjects.
Perspectives on Southwestern Prehistory, edited by Paul B. Minins and Charles L. Redman, Westview Press, Boulder
Jonathan E. Reyman
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology , 1992, DOI: 10.5334/bha.02208
Abstract: This volume contains 23 papers by 41 contributors, divided into 5 sections: Hunters and Gatherers; Transitions to Sedentism; Elites and Regional Systems; Protohistoric Period: Transitions to History; and History of Southwestern Archaeology. Each section has an introduction, and there are commentaries for the second and fourth sections. Some papers are from symposia, others apparently were added to round out the collection.
The Casas Grandes World, edited by Curtis F. Schaafsma and Carroll L. Riley. University of Utah Press, Salt Lake City, 1999
Jonathan E. Reyman
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology , 2001, DOI: 10.5334/bha.11207
Abstract: Casas Grandes (Paquime) has gained prominence as the subject of books and articles since Charles C. Di Peso and his colleagues, John Rinaldo and GIoria Fenner, published their 8-volume master- work in 1974: Casas Grandes: A Fallen Trading Center of the Gran Chichimeca. The volume reviewed here contains an introduction by the editors followed by 18 essays written by 28 scholars, and organized into 4 sections: The Core Area (7); The Outer Sphere (3); The Larger View (7); and Toward a New Synthesis (I). It is dedicated to the memory of J. Charles Kelley and Daniel Wolfman, and the death of Oement Meighan, one of the contributors, is noted in the Acknowledg-ments. This volume is the product of a 1995 symposium - "The Casas Grandes Interaction Sphere: Origins, Nature, Contacts, and Legacy" - held as part of the Durango (Colorado) Conference on Southwest Archaeology.

60 Years of Southwestern Archaeology, A History of the Pecos Conference, by Richard B. Woodbury, University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque, 1993.
Jonathan E. Reyman
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology , 1993, DOI: 10.5334/bha.03207
Abstract: Among the least commendable characteristics of the New Archaeology is a marked anti-historical perspective. The history of archaeology and much, if not most, of earlier theory, method, and the results of fieldwork are considered not worth knowing or irrelevant, especially for graduate education: "graduate courses in anthropology should cease being histories of thought" (Schiffer 1976:193). Regrettably, New Archaeologists generally adopted this perspective and attitude, and partly because they did not pay attention to the history of archaeology, they tended to confirm Santayana's "hypothesis" about the consequences of forgetting the past: many of the arguments and accompanying rancor in the current debate between New Archaeologists and Post-Processualists resound the confrontation of a quarter century ago between New Archaeologists - "the louts" as Florence Hawley Ellis called them (p. 307, this volume) and their predecessors. Furthermore, because the antihistorical bias became so widely adopted, it was difficult to publish on the history of archaeology, at least in the United States.
Culture and Contact: Charles C. Di Peso's Gran Chichimeca, edited by Anne I. Woosley and John C. Ravesloot. Foreword by Anne I. Woosley and Allan J. McIntyre. University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque. 1993
Jonathan E. Reyman
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology , 1994, DOI: 10.5334/bha.04206
Abstract: This volume contains 11 papers from the October 1988 seminar, held at the Amerind Foundation, to assess Charles Di Peso's (1920- 1962) contributions to American archaeology and particularly to the issues of Mesoamerican-Southwestern interaction and the role of Casas Grandes (Paquime) in that interaction. Two additional papers (Emanuel Breitburg's and Ben Nelson's) were solicited later and are included herein.
Alfred Vincent Kidder and the Development of Americanist Archaeology, by Douglas R. Givens, University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque, 1992
Jonathan E. Reyman
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology , 1993, DOI: 10.5334/bha.03112
Abstract: The photography on the book dustjacket portrays the shadows of three men against the back of a rockshelter. Kidder's figure (center) casts the longest shadow, just as Kidder, himself, was a central, dominant figure in Southwestern archaeology from 1915-1940. Indeed, three decades after his death, Kidder still casts a long shadow in the American Southwest: the Pecos Classification (1927), developed under his guidance with the help of Tom Waterman and Alfred Kroeber, remains, with modifications, the basic cultural classificatory system for the Anasazi/historic Pueblo; the Pecos Conference, organised by Kidder and first held in 1927 at Pecos Pueblo, is now more than 65 years old and is probably the longest running regional archaeology conference in the Americas; Pecos Pueblo, itself; now a national monument, is one of the best known and better preserved Pueblo sites; and Kidder's work at Pecos, especially his stratigraphic and ceramic studies (the latter in conduction with Anna Shepard), were models for later archaeological fieldwork and reporting, though a final report on the Pecos excavations was never published.
Nampeyo and Her Pottery, by Barbara Kramer. 1996. University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque,
Jonathan E. Reyman
Bulletin of the History of Archaeology , 1998, DOI: 10.5334/bha.08105
Abstract: Pueblo pottery and Pueblo potters have long been of interest to anthropologists, artists, and other scholars. Pueblo pottery has been a focal point of government, museum, and individual collecting activities for well over a century, beginning with the work of Major John Wesley Powell and later Colonel James Stevenson on behalf of the V.S. Geological Survey and the Bureau of (American) Ethnology. Anna O. Shepard pioneered technical studies of archaeological ceramics based on the pottery of Pecos Pueblo and on sites on the Pajarito Plateau of New Mexico; and Ruth Bunzel's The Pueeblo Potter (1929) is an early classic in the field of anthropological studies of ceramics. Alice Marriott's biography, Moria: The Potter of San Ildefonso (1948) is an early study of a particular Pueblo Potter.
