Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-053: History and Historic Archaeology

Author(s): Deborah A. Duranceau

Year: 1980


The Dolores Archaeological Program will mitigate the archaeological remains in the area to be inundated by the McPhee Reservoir. This mitigation plan calls for a complete synthesis of the historic period in the Dolores area.

Beginning with the Protohistoric Utes and Navajo, the Historic Studies 1979 field year volume will report on the eighteenth century Spanish explorers and the nineteenth century Euro-American settlers. Results of the historic survey, oral history program, and artifact analysis will be described. This summary and syntheses will incorporate the above into a concise description of the historic occupation and settlement of the Dolores River Valley.
