Site FA 2-13 is an Archaic or Basketmaker II open campsite located in

the Farmington Glade Arroyo system. The site is situated on a stabilized

sand dune on the west side of a sandstone cliff in a microecotone between

the pinyon and juniper vegetation and the scrub-grassland of the bottom of

the Farmington Glade Arroyo where various grasses, sagebrush (Artemisia),

rabbitbrush (Chrysothamnus), and snakeweed (Gutierrezia--a high-spine

Compositae) predominate. Water is currently available only on a seasonal

basis; the nearest permanent water supply being the La Plata River 2.13 km

to the west. Two pollen samples were taken within a hearth designated

Feature 1. A third sample was taken from Feature 3, also a hearth; and the

fourth sample was taken from a charcoal concentration level elsewhere in the

site. Two metates are represented by three metate fragments, which were

washed for their pollen content (Table 1). Two of the fragments (FS 224 and

FS 225) fit together and represent a single metate.
