Summary

Prince Hamlet, Site 5MT2161, is a Pueblo I habitation site that was investigated by the Dolores Archaeological program during the 1979 and 1980 field seasons. Evidence of three separate periods of occupation was encountered. The first occupation appears to- have begun sometime after A.D. 720 and to have ended prior to A.D. 840. The exact nature and areal extent of this occupation is uncertain, but it definitely included at least one substantial surface structure and probably one pitstructure. The second occupation, which is believed to have taken place sometime between A.D. 840 and 900, was marked by the construction of a large, double-row roomblock and two large, masonry-lined pithouses. The third occupation of the site appears to have been quite brief and was localized in and around the partially filled depression of one of the pitstructures. This use of the site, which is represented by a cluster of late ceramics that may be associated with the remains of a temporary shelter, is believed to have occurred sometime during the A.D. 1050-1200 time period.
