New Mexico Turquoise in the Casas Grandes Region of Chihuahua?

by

Dr. Timothy D. Maxwell, Director Emeritus

Research Associate


Tim Maxwell is director emeritus at the Museum of New Mexico Archaeological Studies. He has worked in New Mexico archaeology over 40 years. Beginning in 1994, the museum and the Mexican Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) began a collaborative project in the Casas Grandes region of Chihuahua. Dr. Maxwell is still active in research on the area and last year, INAH published a book on the archaeology of northern Mexico develop by him and his INAH colleague.

In recent years, a collaborative project between the Museum of New Mexico and Mexico’s Instituto Nacional e Historia has studied the geographic origin of turquoise found at Paquimé and surrounding sites in Chihuahua. It was once argued that Paquimé rose to prominence partly due to its ability to obtain turquoise and move it southward to Mesoamerican cultures. Current research suggests that is not the case. A review of the research and the results of laboratory studies will be presented.
