Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-033: Excavations at Faraway House (Site 5Mt4763), a Pueblo I / Pueblo II Limited Activity Site
Author(s): James H. Kleidon
Faraway House, Site 5MT4763, was excavated in 1979 as part of the Dolores Archaeological Program (D.A.P.), located in extreme southwestern Colorado. The site was selected for excavation to expand the sample of limited activity/seasonal use sites in the D.A.P. data base . The site consists of a masonry storage bin and two hearths and is located near arable soils. It is inferred that the site was built by the Anasazi during the Pueblo I or Pueblo II period and was used seasonally for the
storage of a cultigen grown nearby.
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.
