I am looking for recent papers or articles dealing with cultural 
development at Chaco Canyon. Two recent theories see the large 
"Bonito Style" settlements as either the result of hydraulic agriculture
and / or central places for the redistribution of food. How 
are these theories holding up? I would appreciate input and/or recent (last
5 years) papers.
