Abstract

Seymour's (2004) recent article contends that a site in the Hueco Mountains of southern New Mexico and west Texas was occupied by the Apache and renegade segments of local nomadic groups of Plains origin. We believe that she over interprets the data from the site and generally sees patterns in the archaeological and documentary records that her data do not substantiate. In this article, we focus on three aspects of her data, the site description and evidence for structures, new ceramic and chipped stone tool types, and the absolute dating using radiocarbon and thermoluminescence techniques that we believe are problematic.
