Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-024: Prehistoric Archaeology of the Sagehen Flats Locality (1982)
DOCUMENT Full-Text David H. Greenwald.

The Sagehen Flats Locality is 1 of 16 localities contained within the Escalante Sector. It is located in southwest Colorado approximately 6 km northwest of Dolores, Colorado. The Sagehen Flats Locality differs from surrounding localities in that it is an area of gentle slopes and small knolls. Its drainages feed the Sagehen Marsh, which eventually drains into the Dolores River to the east. The first prehistoric use of this area has been dated to the Archaic Tradition (5000 B.C.-A .D. 500)...

DOCUMENT Full-Text John L. Montgomery.

Apricot Hamlet, Site 5MT2858, is a multiple occupation Basketmaker Ill/Pueblo I habitation site. Located in Montezuma County, in southwestern Colorado, Apricot Hamlet was excavated in 1979 as a part of the Dolores Archaeological Program (D.A.P.). The site was excavated to acquire informat ion on cultural patterning of the dispersed community which existed on the highlands west of the Dolores River valley during the Sagehen Phase (A.D. 600-850) of the Anasazi Tradition. Excavations revealed a...

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-031: Excavations at Moonlight House (Site 5Mt2205), a Pueblo I Seasonal Use Site (1982)
DOCUMENT Full-Text James H. Kleidon.

Moonlight House (Site 5MT2205), located in extreme southwestern Colorado, is a two-room structure dating to the Pueblo I Period (A.D. 750-900) of the Anasazi Tradition. The site was excavated in 1979 by the Dolores Archaeological Program as an example of a nonhabitational, special-use site. Upon excavation of Moonlight House, it was determined that the site served primarily as a storage facility and food-processing center. Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR...

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-032: Excavations at Casa Roca (Site 5Mt2203), a Pueblo I / Pueblo II Field House (1982)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Joel M. Brisbin.

Casa Roca, Site 5MT2203, is a small, seasonal use, single-component site located in southwestern Colorado. The site was excavated in 1979 by the Dolores Archaeological Program (D.A.P.) as part of a representative sample of sites, by site type and temporal period, from the borrow areas of the Dolores Project, a Bureau of Reclamation water storage project. Casa Roca is assigned to the McPhee Phase (A.D. 850-970) as defined by the D.A.P. temporal system. This corresponds to the late Pueblo I and...

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-081: The Grass Mesa Locality Testing Program, 1979-1980 (1984)
DOCUMENT Full-Text G. Timothy Gross.

Eighteen sites were tested in the Grass Mesa Locality during the 1979 and 1980 field seasons. Test excavations, including both probability and jurlgmental excavation, were conducted at Hanging Rock Hamlet (Site 5MT4650), Cougar Springs Cave (Site 5MT4797), Quasimodo Cave (Site 5MT4789), Dos Cuartos House (Site 5MT2174), Calmate Shelter (Site 5MT4651), and DTA Site (Site 5MT5361). The remaining 12 sites were investigated through surface collection, occasionally augmented by shovel scraping or...

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-082: Excavations at Prince Hamlet (Site 5MT2161), a Pueblo I habitation site (1983)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Lynne Sebastian.

Prince Hamlet, Site 5MT2161, is a Pueblo I habitation site that was investigated by the Dolores Archaeological program during the 1979 and 1980 field seasons. Evidence of three separate periods of occupation was encountered. The first occupation appears to- have begun sometime after A.D. 720 and to have ended prior to A.D. 840. The exact nature and areal extent of this occupation is uncertain, but it definitely included at least one substantial surface structure and probably one pitstructure....

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-083: Excavations at LeMoc Shelter (Site 5MT2151), a multiple-occupation Anasazi site (1983)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Patrick Hogan.

LeMoc Shelter (Site 5MT2151) is a small, stratified site on the south-facing slope of the Dolores River canyon. During excavation of the shelter by the Dolores Archaeological Program, the remains of five successive Anasazi occupations that date to between A.D. 750 and 950 were discovered. During the earliest documented occupation, which dates to the late Sagehill Subphase (A.D. 750-780), the shelter appears to have been occupied year-round by a nuclear family or small extended family. The next...

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-084: Grass Mesa Village (Site 5MT23), Overview and Surface Collection Results: 1979 and 1980 (1983)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Timothy A. Kohler.

Grass Mesa Village (Site 5MT23) is a large Pueblo I habitation site in southwestern Colorado. During investigation by the Dolores Archaeological Program in 1979 and 1980, a systematic surface collection was completed, and a probability sampling program was initiated alongside more intensive excavations. A total of 42 surface structures and 20 pitstructures (including a possible great kiva) were wholly or partially excavated during these first two field seasons. A statistical comparison of the...

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-085: Excavations in Area 3, Grass Mesa Village (Site 5MT23), 1979 and 1980, a Pueblo I habitation (1984)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Cory D. Breternitz.

Excavations conducted in Area 3 of Grass Mesa Village (Site 5MT23) included a probability sample and intensive excavations of roomblock and pithouse subareas. Excavated roomblock and pithouses span the Periman and Grass Mesa Subphases of the McPhee Phase. Historic looting and rodent disturbance had da maged much of the roomblock subarea, preventing detailed description and interpretation. However, at least two major construction episodes are represent ed by small, probably jacal, rooms overlain...

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-086: Archaeological Investigations on Grass Mesa: Area 4, 1979 (1983)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Richard V. N. Ahlstrom. Karen Dohm.

Excavations in Area 4 of Grass Mesa Village (Site 5MT23) encountered multiple surface rooms and a pithouse. All of the structures are dated by ceramics to the A.D. 840 to 910 time period, with abandonment of the pit house and the later rooms occurring between A.D. 875 and 910. Although dating to the same ceramic period , the rooms and the pithouse may not be strictly contemporaneous. The surface rooms we re remodeled and rebuilt several times, while the pithouse had only one remodeling episode....

Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-108: Excavations at Windy Wheat Hamlet (Site 5MT4644), a Pueblo I habitation (1984)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Joel M. Brisbin.

Windy Wheat Hamlet (Site 5MT4644) is a Pueblo I habitation site located in the Sagehen Flats Locality of the Dolores Archaeological Program study area. Three elements of occupation, occurring between A.D. 740 and the early 800's, have been recognized at Windy Wheat Hamlet. During the earliest element, which dates to the late Sagehill Subphase, one pitstructure was occupied at the site. No surface rooms were found to be associated with this element, but extensive pl owing may have destroyed...

Glen Canyon Archeological Survey, Part III (1959)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Don D. Fowler. Florence C. Lister.

Prior to 1957 little was known of the archeology of the area in and near the Glen Canyon of the Colorado River in southeastern Utah and northern Arizona. Difficulties of logistics and access limited a thorough survey and study in the area. Archeological sites were recorded, however, as early as 1869. John W. Powell (1875) noted the ruins at both White and Red canyons during his pioneering explorations of the river. In 1932 Julian H. Steward, then at the University of Utah, recorded 25 sites...
