Pueblo Culture


Definition: The Pueblo culture is the name archaeologists have given to the people of the American southwest who built stone and adobe houses between about 1300 and 1600 AD. They were called pueblo by the Spanish conquistadors ('pueblo' means 'village' in Spanish). A brief bibliography of references about Pueblo culture has been assembled.
