Pueblo Period Archeology at Four Sites, Petrified Forest National Park: Data Recovery Along the Mainline Road
Part of the Archaeology of Petrified Forest National Park project
Author(s): Anne Trinkle Jones
Part I of this report documents work done during Phase III of the project to reconstruct the Mainline Road (Pkg.140) at Petrified Forest National Park. Three sites (AZ K:13:13, AZ K:13:19, and AZ Q:1:58) will be disturbed. A small campsite with a hearth and a small habitation site with a midden, disturbed by road construction during the 1930s, were occupied between A.D. 1175 and A.D. 1250, revealed no features and appeared to be entirely deflated. Design and formal analyses of ceramic collections from each of the sites highlighted functional and temporal differences in the sites. Lithic collections were analyzed to recover qualitative data regarding spation and temporal variability in flaked stone technology. Differences in site functions were documented, and previous findings of a change through time in lithic reduction strategy were upheld.
Part II of the report relatesthe findings of mapping and surface collection at Site 236, a site with a small rubble mound and a Great Kiva. The ceremonial site, occupied around A.D. 1100, is compared to similar sites in the region and to the two contemporaneous sites described in Part I of this report.
