Promotional Information

In 1932 the Swarts Ruin report by avocational archaeologists Hattie and Burt Cosgrove brought a symbolic end to the proto-scientific era of archaeology in New Mexico's Mimbres Valley. This welcome new edition of the report is enhanced by an informative introductory essay by Harvard archaeologist Steven LeBlanc, whose work in the 1970s reinvigorated archaeological research in the Mimbres area. -- J. J. Brody, author of Mimbres Painted Pottery The Swarts Ruin has aged more gracefully than perhaps any other site report. Re-reading the text, or just perusing the extraordinary illustrations, is like visiting an old friend who always has some new insights to share. LeBlanc's introduction puts the Cosgroves' contributions to Southwestern archaeology in historical context and points the way to new research. -- Kelley Hays-Gilpin, University of Northern Arizona
