EMAP Flying Fish – LA37767 Unit 34, 1998


The Site LA 37767 was excavated through two seasons in the summer of 1998 and 2001 by the ASU Eastern Mimbres Archaeological Project (EMAP) Field School. The goal of this project was to collect data from Mimbres Classic Period habitation rooms in order to examine the occupational and abandonment history of such sites in the Eastern Mimbres area. This report summarizes the results of the excavation conducted in Unit 34 of the site in 2001. LA 37767 consists of multiple roomblocks; there are at least three roomblocks and two or three isolated rooms spread across the terrace in the E-W direction. It is known from previous research that these roomblocks were occupied in multiple periods with at least two superimposed construction phases. The site lies on a basalt piedmont above the floodplain of the Arroyo Seco. The Arroyo Seco is a locally perennial stream, draining a portion of the Black Range of southwest New Mexico into the Rio Grande to the east.
