The precontact Southwest was an extremely diverse cultural landscape inhabited by groups who probably spoke many different languages and saw themselves as distinct peoples. They made a living through hunting, collecting wild plants, and farming corn, beans, squash, and a variety of other crops.
Archaeology The Basics
In the absence of historical records, archaeologists must rely on the buildings and belongings people left behind to help us understand those people and their complex lives. When archaeologists see similarities through time and across space in the houses in which people lived, the objects they made and used, their artistic expressions, and the way they made their living, we can sometimes define what we call archaeological cultures.

Archaeological culture areas represent geographic zones where we think people were living in generally similar ways and across which people were connected through a shared history of interaction. Therefore, we cannot assume that the archaeological cultures necessarily relate to any social divisions that people in the past would have recognized. In other words, an archaeological culture is not the same as what we might consider a culture today—a group marked by a shared language, lifeway, and often a shared historical origin.
Although archaeologists love to draw circles on maps almost as much as politicians do, it is often difficult to define clear-cut boundaries between archaeological cultural areas.
