River Basin Surveys Papers, No. 5: The Hodges Site

Author(s): Herbert W. Dick; Sheldon Judson

Year: 1953


The excavation of the Hodges site was undertaken during August 1947, because the site was being looted by workmen from construction projects nearby. The site actually was not in danger of inundation but was being destroyed as completely as it would have been had the site fallen within the pool area. Secondary factors were to aid the geologist in determining the date of an alluvial deposit through cultural material and to obtain and record additional archeological evidence for determining cultural types, the way of life, and the history in east central New Mexico. The geologic results are given in the second part of this dual report by Sheldon Judson, of University of Wisconsin, whose problem is that of determining the alluvial chronology of the region. The geologic study of the area was begun in 1941 by Judson.
