EMAP (1994) Charred Macroplant Remains from the 1994 Excavations on the Ladder Ranch

Part of the EMAP - Reports project

Author(s): Michael Diehl

Year: 1994


During the summer of 1994, Eastern Mimbres Archaeological Project (EMAP) staff

excavated portions of four prehistoric cobble-masonry pueblos (LA 37726, LA 37727, LA 37728,

and LA 3949) on the Ladder Ranch in Sierra County, New Mexico. During the course of the

excavations, flotation samples were recovered from hearths, primary and secondary post holes,

storage pits, mealing bins, and rodent burrows in the floors of rooms. The primary purpose ofthis

report is to describe the frequencies and taxa of charred wood and seed specimens that were

found in flotation samples, describe the uses of these plants, and assess their impact on questions

of resource selection and residential mobility in the Eastern Mimbres region.
