Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-035: Excavations at Marsh View (Site 5MT2235), a Pueblo III Habitation Site
Author(s): Richard H. Wilshusen
Marshview Hamlet (Site MT2235), a small Pueblo-III habitation site located northwest of Dolores, Colorado, was excavated during the 1978 field season as part of the Dolores Archaeological Program. Between 24 July and 2 November 1978; a small pithouse and associated surface structures and features of this small unit hamlet were excavated and documented by University of Colorado crew members and personnel of the Bureau of Reclamation Youth Conservation Corps and Young Adult Conservation Corps. In October 1979 the site was regridded for a more extensive surface collection.
Materials and artifacts collected from Marshview Hamlet suggest that the prehistoric inhabitants were·a family of horticulturalists subsisting on crops grown in fields near the site. Faunal remains indicate that the inhabitants augmented their diet by hunting small game.
The main occupation at Marshview Hamlet occurred in the Sundial Phase (A.D. 1050-1200), according to D.A.P. temporal systematics. Soon after the main abandonment, a multiple burial was placed in the pithouse: the relationship of the burial to the main occupation of the site remains uncertain. Other evidence suggests that the site also served as a limited activity locus after the main occupation.
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.
