About Samantha Fladd
I am a PhD candidate focusing on the archaeology of the Puebloan Southwest. My regions of focus are the Homol’ovi Settlement Cluster of northeast Arizona and Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico. The large, contiguous structures of these regions allow me to investigate the population dynamics, ritual activities, and spatial signatures of the processes of aggregation, coalescence, and depopulation and their association with expressions of social identity, memory, and power.
