Synopsis

Casas Grandes, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is under the purview of the Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia, which oversees a world-class museum near the ruins. Paquime visitors can learn about the site's history and its excavations, which were conducted under the pioneering research of Charles Di Peso and Eduardo Contreras Sanchez and their colleagues from INAH and the Amerind Foundation.Based on a half century of modern research since the Joint Casas Grandes Project, this book explores the recent discoveries about this important site and its neighbors. Drawing from the expertise of fourteen scholars from the United States, Mexico, and Canada, who have long worked in the region, the chapters reveal new insights about Paquime and its influence, bringing this fascinating place and its story to light.
