Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-058: Fieldwork and Systematics

Author(s): Allen E. Kane

Year: 1983


The University of Colorado and its subcontractor, Washington State University, completed the third year of Dolores Archaeological Program fieldwork in 1980. During the first three seasons of work, the research approach was adapted to meet the changing requirements of a program with a large and complex database, and modifications of the approach were documented in a series of program reports. Also during this period, program systematics (the spatial and temporal systems and the site typology) were reviewed and modified, and different dating methods were employed and evaluated. Specific fieldwork programs during 1980 included inventory of areas to be impacted by construction or related activities, probability survey to gain more comprehensive information concerning areas not included in the inventory survey, magnetometer survey of selected sites, and excavation of potentially impacted sites. The latter program included intensive investigation of 14 sites and testing of 24 other sites.
