The Basketmaker III Period

Time period: A.D. 500-750
It was a pivotal time in Pueblo history, one that saw the introduction of pottery, the bow and arrow and cultivated beans (corn and squash had already been introduced during the earlier Basketmaker II and late Archaic periods). In the Mesa Verde region, the Basketmaker III perriod was also a time of rapid population growth, which archaeologists believe was largely the result of immigration into the area. Where the immigrants came from remains the subject of much research and debate.
