This chapter discusses the history of paleopathology in the American Southwest. It covers the study of pathology in the 1870s when human crania recovered during geological and geographical survey expeditions were examined by several physicians; the excavation of Pecos Pueblo; paleopathology in the era of environmental archaeology, 1970–1990; how evidence of violence and cannibalism dominated both popular and scholarly publications on human remains from the Southwest studies in the 1990s; and current research trajectories.

Keywords:   American paleopathology, history, Indians, Pecos Pueblo, environmental archaeology
