The Archeology of Gila Cliff Dwellings


Although Gila Cliff Dwellings has been known for over 100 years, and has been protected as a national monument since 1907, its archeology was never systematically reported. Several years ago, four of the authors of this report (Anderson, Fenner, Morris, and Tesgue) decided to correct this situation, working, as time permitted, with the records and artifacts stored at the monument and in the Western Archeological and Conservation Center. In the final year of report writing, the Southwestern Regional Office of the National Park Service provided some funding for special studies, travel, and report cost. This report is the result of those efforts.
