EMAP Lee – LA70258 Unit 1, 1991

Year: 1991

Summary

85NM612 is a small roomblock on the first terrace on the north side of Palomas Creek (Figure 1). The site was chosen for excavation because of its potential to yield information on questions related to the abandonment of the Mimbres Valley. Nelson (1991) has suggested that the abandonment of the Mimbres drainage in AD1150 was not characterized by a large scale migration but involved the reorganization of large residential pueblos into smaller organizational units which moved into marginal areas adjacent to the Mimbres region . The east side of the Black Range is an area which offers tentative evidence of post-Classic Mimbres occupation.
