Prehistory in Peril is the first accurate account of the early period of archaeological study of the Durango area. The area, still rife with unexplored sites, drew many self-trained amateurs and pothunters. As more and more historically significant artifacts were found, bitter confrontation and animosity developed between professionals and enthusiasts.
Prehistory in Peril follows this fascinating drama and reevaluates data from two prominent archaeologists of that time, Earl Morris and Robert Burgh, and takes into account more recent research to draw new conclusions about the prehistoric cultural patterns revealed in the southern Colorado area of Durango.(Publisher). Very good. Item #7585
