Badger House Community Mesa Verde National Park
Badger House Community Mesa Verde National Park Author:Alden C. Hayes, James A. Lancaster Foreword from the book: — From 1958 through 1965, the National Park Service, with generous support from the National Geographic Society, conducted a comprehensive field study of the archeology and ecology of Wetherill Mesa, in Mesa Verde National Park. As research and plans for interpretation continue, the park is being developed so that increasi... more »ng numbers of visitors will be able to observe the evolution of the prehistoric culture, both on Wetheril and in the nearby and more familiar section of the park known as Chapin Mesa.
It is a pleasure to present the fifth monograph of the Wetherill Mesa series. This report on Badger House Community is the result of excavations conducted at three adjacent mesa-top sites. It interprets the findings as representing the cultural and physical remains of a community of simple Indian farmers during a span of over 600 years, from roughly the mid-7th through the mid-13th centuries AD.« less
