Archeology of Pajarito Park, New Mexico

Part of the Antiquities Act project

Author(s): Hewett Edgar L.

Year: 1904


In the summer of 1896 the writer commenced to investigate the archeology of the plateau between the Jemez mountain range and the Rio Grande in New Mexico. The ethnological significance of this region seemed at that time to have been overlooked, nor has it yet received much attention. The studies then begun have continued intermittently ever since.

The first object was to obtain such facts as could be obtained by exploration, photography, and a limited amount of excavation. I hope to be able to present at some future time an extended report on the archeology of this region. Much work is yet to be done. The data procured are insufficient for any exhaustive study. The present paper is a preliminary notice of the district, the work commenced there, and the method employed.
