Roadmap Village (LA 45157) - Unit 4 Summary


Unit 4 is the western-most unit of the room block excavated at the site of LA45157 (Roadmap). The unit was selected to be excavated due to its location and relative completeness. Based on the visibility of wall alignments on the ground surface, four areas thought to be rooms at LA45157 were excavated during the 2007 field season. Surface depressions indicated that the site had suffered from extensive looting in the past, though is appeared that Units Three and Four were victim to less damage than Units One and Two. Units Three and Four share a wall (Unit Four’s east wall), and this close proximity allows for comparisons between adjacent rooms, as well as the excavation of both sides of the wall. This excavation strategy was utilized, because one of the research objectives of the Mogollon Prehistoric Landscapes Project during the 2007 field season was to ascertain the construction sequence of this area of the pueblo and the level of planning involved in its construction.
