Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Whalen describes the research that has occurred in south-central New Mexico and western Texas and the types of sites that have been found. They range from small temporary camps or special use areas to pithouse villages. In this document Whalen presents a 'large-scale settlement pattern analysis and interpretation of Pithouse period adaptive strategies.' (page 318). Whalen also considers subsistence strategies and how they varied across the landscape and through time. Included is a brief discussion about what is known about social organization and interaction such as villages were probably composed of nuclear families, some villages had ceremonial structures, and the few non-local items that were exchanged were transmitted from village to village.
