Petrified Forest National Park Boundary Survey, 1988: The Final Season
Part of the Archaeology of Petrified Forest National Park project
Author(s): Susan J. Wells
The fourth and final season of the Petrified Forest National Park Boundary Survey was conducted from June 27 to July 15, 1988. Twenty-one miles of quarter-mile-wide corridor were surveyed along the northern and western edges of the Painted Desert. Additional survey was conducted in
various localities throughout the park including Pilot Rock, Mountain Lion
Mesa and a ridge system southeast of Agate House. Intensive rock art
recording at Mountain Lion Mesa was undertaken upon completion of the
survey. Nineteen sites and twelve isolated artifacts were recorded.
Also included in this report is a rock art analysis by Don D. Christensen (Chapter 4). He summarizes the rock art sites recorded this summer and compares Petrified Forest rock art with other rock art from the Rio Grande and Little Colorado River regions.
In addition to summarizing this season's discoveries, this report
includes a settlement pattern study using all survey data collected since
1978. Broad patterns of settlement are compared with the Homol'ovi State
Park and Southwest Hopi Buttes survey data.
