Aztec West Ruin: Perishable Artifacts and Pottery from Excavations by the American Museum of Natural History

» Downloads & Basic Metadata


Summary

Digital images of pottery and perishable items recovered from Earl Morris' excavations of Aztec West Ruin between 1916 and 1922. Although Morris' excavations at Aztec were extensive, his analysis and descriptions of the artifact assemblage were cursory. In 2003, Laurie Webster and Lori Stephens Reed began systematic analysis, documentation, and digital imaging of pottery and perishables from Morris' Aztec West Ruin collections housed at the American Museum of Natural History, New York, NY and Aztec Ruins National Monument, Aztec, New Mexico. Although their work with the Aztec Ruins collections continues, this tDAR project includes images of all pottery and perishable artifacts documented by the researchers through 2011. Documentation of the artifacts was undertaken as part of several research projects involving the Chacoan and post-Chacoan occupations of Aztec Ruins and other sites in the Middle San Juan region of northwestern New Mexico.
