Investigations at the Pueblo Alto Complex, Chaco Canyon, New Mexico: Volume II Part 2 Architecture and Stratigraphy
This volume is devoted primarily to the description of the field work conducted at Pueblo Alto (Figure 1.1). Over 4,700 pages of field notes and 5,500 photographs cover the excavation of 13 rooms and 2 kivas at Pueblo Alto along with the description of all tests. These investigations have been reorganized and distilled here. To the interested reader some idea of the magnitude of the notes for Pueblo Alto is suggested by comparison with Judd’s work at Pueblo Bonito that netted two shoe boxes full of 5 by 8 inch cards (approximately 1,100 cards) that cover the nearly 220 rooms and 25 kivas cleared by the National Geographic Society Project in the 1920s as well as some rooms and kivas cleared by George Pepper and Richard Wetherill in the 1890s. This does not belittle Judd’s fine effort which was based on goals different from our own but emphasizes the increased number and detail of observations made by archeologists today.
