Documentation for Chapters in Prehistory of Eastern Arizona, II


This document is a catalog of all the stone, bone, shell and baked clay artifacts recovered at the Carter Ranch Site during the two seasons, 1961-1962, by the Southwest Archaeological Expedition of the Chicago Natural History Museum. A generalized description and specific dimensions of individual specimens are given along with other details. In addition, detailed site maps, showing the distribution of 175 elements of pottery designs at the Carter Ranch Site used in the analysis of stylistic attributes to recover sociological information, are included. Tables of the relative frequency of design-elements at the Carter Ranch Site and a series of contemporary sites used in the analysis follow the individual maps. Information on sites LS-171 through LS-232 located by our archaeological surface survey forms the final section of the report.

The Archives of Archaeology Series is a 29-volume set jointly published by the University of Wisconsin Press and the Society for American Archaeology on opaque microcards, a now obsolete format. The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse has digitized the original opaque microcards and made the digital copies available through tDAR. More information on the process of digitizing the series can be found in Joseph Tiffany’s 2012 article entitled "Digitizing the Archives of Archaeology Series" in the SAA Archaeological Record (
