Gone but not forgotten: Perishable artifacts from Aztec Ruins (NM) preserved in photographs, 1916-1923.
Author(s): Erin Baxter
When excavated 100 years ago, many of the perishable items found at Aztec Ruins did not long survive the process. Fortunately, chief archaeologist Earl Morris was an avid shutterbug and modern researchers are treated to dozens of curated photos of in situ perishable objects that include architectural features, basketry, fibers, etc. When (re-)placed into context with other archaeological data, these items are helping to tell new stories about Aztec Ruins.
