EMAP Las Animas – LA3949 Unit 16, 18, & 19, 1995


Unit 16 is the southernmost unit excavated at Las Animas Village during the 1995 field season, located approximately 35 meters south of the Black Mountain Phase plaza area. The unit lies on a narrow finger of the mesa top, and the downward sloping ground surfaces to the east, south and west create channels for water and erosion. This area of the Black Mountain Phase pueblo has been explored in previous field seasons: Units 10 and 15 lie immediately to the north of Unit 16, Unit 5 lies adjacent to the northwest, and Unit 13 adjacent to the southwest. Unit 16 was placed centrally relative to these rooms with the expectation that it would help to flesh out the sequence of construction and rebuilding in the southern end of the Black Mountain phase pueblo.
