Summary

Four samples from the Pigg site, 5MT4802, in southwest Colorado were submitted for

AMS radiocarbon dating. Three of these samples represent charred Zea mays (corn) cob

fragments, while one sample was identified as a charred Zea mays kernel fragment. This site

contains 6-8 unit pueblos (room blocks). Ceramics recovered from the site place occupation

during the late Pueblo II/early Pueblo III period. The samples were collected from two

contiguous rooms in Room Block 1.
