Abstract

The Gallina Region in northern New Mexico is most accurately located by the intersection of 36 degrees 22' North parallel and the 101 degrees 52' West meridian. This is nearly the point at which the Llegua River, coming from the continental Divide about ten miles to the west, flows into the Gallina River (Plate II, a). A circle with this confluence as a center and with a fifteen-mile radius, would include the major portion of the ruins belonging to the Gallina group. Additional sites have been located west of the Divide in the Largo, Companero, Governador (Gobernador) drainages; south in the vicinity of Cabezon Peak; on the east bank of the Chama River; and as far north as Colorado. Additional work must be done before the exact limits of this Region are defined (Figure 1) .
