EMAP Alivas Canyon - LA44997 Unit 100, 1997

Author(s): Karen Gust

Year: 1997


During the 1997 summer field season of the Eastern Mimbres Archaeological Project, three units were excavated at the site of LA44997, including Unit 100. LA44997 is a Classic period Mimbres site located in the upper Palomas drainage area. The site is situated on the lower southern slopes of a large hill. To the south and downhill from the site, a large arroyo fonns a valley bottom, separating this hill from others to the south. The two primary units excavated at the site, Units 1 and 2, were both located in a roomblock built on this slope. Unit 100 was situated a short distance to the south and downhill from these units, in a midden area in the southern portion of the site. The unit was a 1x2 meter test unit excavated at the end of the field season in order to determine the depth and artifact content of the midden and contribute additional information to the analysis of site LA44997 as a whole.
