Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-007: Excavations at Little House (Site 5MT2191), a Pueblo I/Pueblo II field house.
Author(s): Nancy J. Hewitt
Little House (Site 5MT2191) is a small Anasazi seasonal habitation or agricultural field house located approximately five miles northwest of Dolores, Colorado. The site was excavated during the summer of 1978 as part of the Dolores Project Cultural Resources Mitigation Program. Field operations were conducted during the months of July and August. A crew consisting of University of Colorado and Youth Conservation Corps personnel investigated the small surface structure comprising four small rooms and associated features. On the basis of ceramic analysis, Little House has been assigned to the early part of the McPhee Phase (AD 850 - 970). Site 5MT2191 was probably the seasonal abode for a small household or intrahousehold group practicing small-scale agriculture in the immediate site vicinity. It is inferred that the site was occupied only during the growing and harvest season (May- September). The lack of any major remodeling episodes and the small size of the material collection suggest that the site was in use for a short period of time, perhaps no more than a single generation.
