On Tuesday, October 3, 2023, join Archaeology Café’s “Tame or Wild? Emergent Ranching Cultures of Spanish Colonial Pimería Alta” free online lecture with Nicole Mathwich, PhD, presented by Archaeology Southwest. This free Zoom lecture will be held from 6:00-7:00 p.m. (Arizona/Mountain Standard Time). Dr. Mathwich’s talk will explore the emergent animal husbandry culture in the Pimería Alta from the first introduction of livestock through the Spanish mission system (1687-1833). Nicole Mathwich (San Diego State University) compares and contrasts faunal bone from five mission sites from both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, then digs deeper into the site of Mission Guevavi to examine how levels of ferality were strategically employed there.
