Analysis and 3D Modeling of Pithouse Architecture during the Developmental-to-Coalition period Transition in the Albuquerque Basin
Recent archaeological investigations at LA 151618 on the west side of Albuquerque exposed an extensive residential site dating to the late Developmental-to-Coalition period transition. The site contains a wide range of subterranean architectural features, including three pithouse structures, and three storage pits/middens, some of surprising depth. In partnership with Charles Frederick, consulting geoarchaeologist, Dublin, Texas and Arlo McKee, consulting geoarchaeologist, Richardson, Texas, two features were modeled using Agisoft Photoscan to produce a scaled 3D model, DEM, and orthophoto. Through comparison with features from contemporaneous sites in the region, the results of these analyses have implications for social developments occurring in the Middle Rio Grande Valley during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
