Paquimé (Casas Grandes), Mogollon culture

by

Paquimé played a key role in trade and cultural contacts between the Pueblo culture of the southwestern United States and Mesoamerica.

Paquimé, Casas Grandes, which reached its apogee in the 14th and 15th centuries, played a key role in trade and cultural contacts between the Pueblo culture of the south-western United States and northern Mexico and Mesoamerica. The extensive remains, only part of which have been excavated, are clear evidence of the vitality of a culture which was perfectly adapted to its physical and economic environment, but which suddenly vanished at the time of the Spanish Conquest.
