Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-026: Excavations at Apricot Hamlet (Site 5Mt2858), a Basket Maker II / Pueblo I Habitation Site
Author(s): 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 pithouse, with main chamber and antechamber, several peripheral features, and a second, unfinished, pitstructure. The antechamber contained a hearth and deflector mold, indicating that it was used, at some point, for domestic activities. Based on ceramic evidence, archaeomagnetic dating samples, and the presence of a midden deposit in the pithouse, the site is believed to have been occupied bet ween A.D. 635 and 680, abandoned, and then reoccupied briefly between A.D. 750 and 800, during which time the second pitstructure was begun.
This report was written in 1980. Parts of the technical appendixes included here have been revised since that time, based on subsequent analysis. As a result, reference has been made to documents published after the report was written.
Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. In 2015, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.
