Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-031: Excavations at Moonlight House (Site 5Mt2205), a Pueblo I Seasonal Use Site
Author(s): 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 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.
