The Kayenta Anasazi: Archaeological Investigations Along the Black Mesa Railroad Corridor, Volume 2 - Site Descriptions
This volume presents available data on each of the 50 sites excavated during the course of project investigations. The sites are presented in numerical order beginning with NA6706 and ending with NA11,251. Each site description begins with an account of the general setting and the immediate environment. This is followed by a description of site excavation and stratigraphy. Detail in this section is generally very limited. Every site that contains architecture is shown in a schematic map. Next, all architectural units are described in detail. This is followed by a description of extramural features and burials. The final section is a summary of artifacts from the site, usually presented in tables. Although it was not practical to compare the data from each site to all of the ceramic trends determined for the project as a whole, it could be determined whether the people at an individual site were selecting the same materials for worked sherd manufacture as were favored by the project generally. Overall, whitewares were the favored material for making worked sherds. There also appears to have been a preference for bowl sherds over jar sherds, since worked bowl sherds are more numerous than would be expected if random selection were taking place. A statement about whether a particular site follows or deviates from these trends is included in each site description.
Individual artifacts are mentioned only briefly in the site descriptions. Full descriptions and discussions of these artifacts or artifact classes are to be found in Volume I of this report.
Artifacts found in floor fills or on floors are listed in the architecture description for each site. They are not specifically mentioned in the site descriptions unless their provenience has significant meaning.
