Obsidian in the Ancient American Southwest
Archaeology 101 Series / with Sean Dolan

Museum of Indian Arts and Culture

Before the Spanish arrived in the American Southwest, obsidian was the sharpest material available for making stone tools for hunting, warfare, and ceremony. Each flow of this volcanic glass has a unique geothermal fingerprint, allowing archaeologists to trace social interaction, trade, and mobility in ancient times. Lecture delivered by Sean Dolan, a LANL archaeologis and UNM graduate student.
