Southwestern Historical Quarterly
analysis of the archaeological remains excavated by author Donny L.
Hamilton at Granado Cave in 1978.
Hamilton begins with a brief overview of the geology and environment
of the Granado Cave area and reviews previous archaeological investiga-
tions. Then he and other researchers present detailed analyses of the
burials and other material remains found in the cave, as well as the results
of radiocarbon dating. From these findings, he reconstructs the subsis-
tence patterns and burial practices of these Native Americans, whom he
identifies as a distinct group that was pushed into the environment by sur-
rounding peoples. He proposes that they should be represented by a new
archaeological phase, thus helping to clarify the poorly understood late
prehistory of the Trans-Pecos. This book is available for $55, hardcover,
also from University of Texas Press.
