Artifact and Rock Distributions at Pueblo la Plata

Part of the Legacies on the Landscape project

Author(s): Lisa Baldwin; Caitlin Wichlacz

Year: 2004

Summary

Artifact and rock distributions were noticeably different across the landscape surrounding Pueblo La Plata. By sampling artifact and rock densities along three transects, we attempted to determine what the independent distribution patterns were for artifacts and for rocks. By combining our results, we hoped to see whether or not there was a correlation between artifact and rock densities across the site. We expected to see a drop in artifact densities farther from the pueblo, where less human activity may have taken place, and a drop in rock densities nearer the site, where rocks might have impeded human activities.
