 Pecos Classification - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Pecos Classification is a division of all known Ancient Pueblo Peoples culture into chronological phases, based on changes in architecture, art, pottery, and cultural remains.
The original Pecos Classification contained eight stages of Southwestern prehistory but did not specify dates.
Although the original has been significantly debated and sometimes modified over the years, the split into Basketmaker and Pueblo eras still serves as a basis for discussing the culture of the Ancient Puebloans of the Four Corners area.

Many classification systems have been created over the years because scientists were unable to agree on a single classification.
Due to this classification, the Anasazi culture was subdivided into two periods, the Basketmaker Period and the Pueblo Period.
The Robert’s Classification is a simplification of the Pecos Classification, subdividing the Anasazi Culture into Basketmaker, Modified Basketmaker, Developmental Pueblo, Great Pueblo, Regressive Pueblo and Historic Pueblo.

 Alfred V. Kidder Summary
Now a national monument, Pecos Pueblo was a landmark in American archeology and a training ground for many of the men who were to mold its development.
During Kidder’s studies and excavations at Pecos Pueblo, particularly between 1915 and 1929, pottery and other artifacts were sent to Andover, Massachusetts, while excavated human remains were sent to the Peabody Museum at Harvard.
Although Kidder was aware of the long standing relationship between the abandoned Pecos Pueblo and the modern Pueblo of Jemez, he did not consider that any local population had a claim on artifacts and remains.

More likely, it was the Spaniards' loose classification, their admission that "they all look alike," that made the Faraones the special friends of the Pecos one minute and the foes of Pecos auxiliaries the next.
If the Spaniards were confused, the Pecos themselves made a clear distinction between the Faraones of the plains and the Faraones who regularly took refuge in the Sierra de Sandía.
In August of 1714, while many of the Pecos men were on campaign in the Sandías, seven Apaches, identified by the Pecos themselves as members of the Sandía band, showed up at the pueblo.

In general, the original Pecos classification (Kidder 1927) provides the temporal framework for discussing patterns and changes in patterns, but in virtually every report reviewed for this study, the researchers subdivided the Pecos periods into smaller units as well.
According to the Pecos classification, the Pueblo II period lasted from A.D. 900 to 1100, and the Pueblo III period extended from A.D. 1100 to 1300.
The construction of the large pueblos led early researchers in the Southwest to characterize Pueblo III as the "grand period" of "urban development," in contrast to Pueblo II, which was characterized as the "small house" period in the original Pecos classification (Martin 1927:181; Kidder 1927:489-491; Cordell 1984:56).

Kidder did convene a second conference at Pecos in 1929 and a third was held in Santa Fe in 1931 in conjunction with the dedication of the Laboratory of Anthropology.
This 1937 conference was called a Chaco Anthropological Conference, not a Pecos Conference, although it effectively revived the idea of a late summer field conference for reporting informally on current research.
But the Pecos Conference was revived with a 1946 meeting in Santa Fe, and in 1947 the University of New Mexico invited anthropologists to meet once more in Chaco Canyon.

 Ancient Pueblo Peoples Summary
Archaeologists still debate when a distinct culture emerged, but the current consensus, based on terminology defined by the Pecos Classification, suggests their emergence around 1200 B.C., the Basketmaker II Era.
Archaeological cultural units such as "Anasazi", Hohokam, Patayan or Mogollon are used by archaeologists to define material culture similarities and differences that may identify prehistoric socio-cultural units, equivalent to modern societies or peoples.
The names and divisions are classification devices based on theoretical perspectives, analytical methods and data available at the time of analysis and publication.

Many refer to the Anasazi period as beginning "around the time of Jesus," which suggests the year of Jesus' birth, the almost-mythical Year Zero (which is actually 4 or 5 B.C., now that the earlier calendars have been reevaluated in light of recent knowledge).
This gathering established the Pecos Classification, a chronology of the Anasazi period.
According to that standard, a distinct Anasazi culture began around 1500 B.C., with the early cultivation of maize, as determined by radiocarbon dating of plant remains.
