3-Up Site (LA 150373) - Unit 102 Summary

Author(s): Steve Swanson

Year: 2007

Summary

Unit 102 is located in Area A of the 3-Up Site, near the northeastern corner of a large mound along a 1 to 2 m deep bulldozed trench. This unit was selected for excavation to provide additional information on the depositional history for this part of the site. The bulldozer trench that cuts through this part of the mound revealed possible wall alignments along its length, and we placed the unit in a location where the trench appeared to have clipped only part of a prehistoric room located some distance from the previous excavations we had conducted in Unit 101. Our work in that unit suggested that the mound has a complex history of deposition from at least two and more likely three cultural time periods. Sherds visible on the surface near the location selected for excavation included probably Gila and Tularosa ware types, so we felt that excavating in this area could provide more information on construction sequences. The shallower depth of deposits that was apparent in this part of the mound was also a criteria used for selecting a location for excavating, since we had only two days to commence and complete excavation.
