 Pecos River Style
The consistent depiction of the atlatl and the absence of the bow and arrow imply that the Pecos River style originated and flourished during the long Archaic period, from 7000 B.C. to A.C. 600 in this region.
The period of highest population density, and presumably scalar stress, within the estimated range of the Pecos River style is roughly between 2000 and 1000 B.C. Although admittedly speculative, this estimate provides a heuristic device for future archeological research into Lower Pecos population dynamics.
The Pecos River style contributes to a reconstruction of prehistoric lifeways,by I believe, demonstrating that a unified belief system, rooted in a shamanic tradition, was an organizing principle in Archaic society.

The Pecos River, a typical Western freestone stream nestled at the foot of the Sangre de Christo Mountains in northern New Mexico, is certainly not any secret trout stream.
While the limited warmth of the midday sun is scarcely enough to buoy the metabolism of the Pecos River's trout, it is just enough to trigger one of the few hatches that occur during winter's icy grip.
Since the river supports a superb summertime caddis hatch — along with hatches of smaller fl, brown and yellow stoneflies and March browns — it also pays to carry a good selection of fl-, brown-, gray- and tan-colored nymphs.
