Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-014: Climatic Reconstruction (1982)

DOCUMENT [ID: 394746] Kenneth L. Peterson.

Pollen records from two locations in the spruce (Picea engelmannii) forest of the La Plata Mountains, southwestern Colorado, provide paleoclimatic information for the headwater region of the Dolores River. Because of the difference in spruce growth response to climatic variation at its upper and lower elevational limits, the pollen records from Twin Lakes and Beef Pasture yield paleoclimatic information unobtainable from either record alone. Radiocarbon dates, tree-ring indices, and historic...

DOCUMENT [ID: 89867] Gary A. Brown.

Horse Bone Camp, Site 5MT2199, is a limited activity site believed to have been occupied during both the Archaic (3000 B.C.-A.D. 500) and Anasazi (A.D. 600-1200) time periods. On the basis of ceramic evidence, use of the site during the latter period appears to have spanned the Sagehen (A.D. 600-850), McPhee (A.D. 850-970), and Sundial (A.D. 1050-1200 ) phases according to Dolores Archaeological Program (D.A.P.) temporal systematics. Occupation of the site during both the Archaic and Anasazi...
