Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097431370X, Staple Bound)Tracing the Past is an example of how American archaeology is conducted, based on work along the 412-mile Rocky Mountain Expansion Loop Pipeline in Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico. Along its route it intersects a variety of landscapes. For thousands of years this land supported many different cultures, each adapted to local conditions. Beginning with the earliest occupants discovered along the pipeline, the Paleoindians, the reader is lead through a sample of progressively younger cultures, culminating with the final Native American groups, the Utes and Navajo, and then the modern European-Americans who built railroads, farmed and mined the area. This book draws on nearly two thousand pages of unpublished reports written about the excavations along the pipeline route. It provides a brief overview of the cultural development of the area, describes how archaeologists gather and interpret information about the past, and discusses the value of cultural resource management.
