Those who came before : southwestern archeology in the National Park System : featuring photographs from the George A. Grant Collection and a portfolio by David Muench by Robert H Lister( Book )

14 editions published between 1983 and 1994 in English and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is a substantially revised and expanded overview of the legacy of prehistoric cultures of the American Southwest, as preserved and interpreted by the National Park Service in more than 37 sites. The DVD explores the monumental architecture and finely crafted arts created by the ancestral culture of the Southwest while telling how explorers, ranchers, and scholars pieced together the history of these ancient Indians. The DVD features menu-based chapter selections, English language subtitle option, and a transcript of the narration in a DVD-ROM content area for computer users.--From publisher
Chaco Canyon : archaeology and archaeologists by Robert H Lister( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chaco Canyon, sprawled in the desert of northwestern New Mexico and uninhabited since the twelfth century, is one of North America's richest archaeological zones. This lavishly illustrated book is the first complete account of Chacoan archaeology, from the discovery of the ruins by Spanish soldiers in the seventeenth century through the scientific analyses of the 1970s. The authors follow the history of Chacoan archaeology with a vivid portrayal of the day-to-day lives of the Anasazi Indians, the Neolithic farmers who abandoned the region some 800 years ago. Though intended for the general reading public with an interest in archaeology, this book will be useful to professionals as well, as a compendium of information and photography hitherto scattered in numerous separate reports and monographs. Particularly valuable is a list of all investigated sites at Chaco Canyon, including location, features, dates, and other pertinent information.--Amazon.com

Troweling through time : the first century of Mesa Verdean archaeology by Florence C Lister( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The archaeology of the north edge of the Southwest began in 1849 with the discovery of Chaco Canyon by the U.S. Army Corps of Topographical Engineers. By the end of the nineteenth century the form of archaeology known as pot hunting was well under way. In Troweling Through Time, Florence Lister tells the story of the archaeology of the area." "In 1907 Edgar Hewett, director of the School of American Archaeology, recruited three Harvard undergraduates to survey the ruins. These novices, Sylvanus Morley, Alfred Kidder, and John Gould Fletcher, were followed by other field workers whose names are just as legendary today. Lister explains what these people found and what it meant. She traces the story through the twentieth century, during which time archaeology became a science and women gained acceptance in the profession. The story goes through the work of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, which has taken the study of the Southwest beyond archaeology, inviting representatives of the region's modern tribes to offer their perspectives on the past. Lister's presentation will be of interest to professional and amateur archaeologists, tourists, and historians."--Jacket

Prehistory in peril : the worst and the best of Durango archaeology by Florence C Lister( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prehistory in Peril is the first accurate account of the early period of archaeological study of the Durango area. The area, still rife with unexplored sites, drew many self-trained amateurs and pothunters. As more and more historically significant artifacts were found, bitter confrontation and animosity developed between professionals and enthusiasts. Prehistory in Peril follows this fascinating drama and reevaluates data from two prominent archaeologists of that time, Earl Morris and Robert Burgh, and takes into account more recent research to draw new conclusions about the prehistoric cultural patterns revealed in the southern Colorado area of Durango

Pot luck : adventures in archaeology by Florence C Lister( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in Undetermined and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Lister's view of the past is not rose-colored. She recalls an early advisor's suggestion that a woman marry an archaeologist if she wanted to pursue the profession. In addition to exciting moments of archaeological discovery, she tells of waiting out rainstorms on wet, muddy backroads; worrying that children might become ill far from medical care; and bartering with less-than-scrupulous archaeological traders. Pot Luck follows the Listers on expeditions in Mexico, the Middle East, Spain, and the Southwest
