Room 28 in Pueblo Bonito: Architecture and Ceramics

Author(s): Patricia Crown

Year: 2018


A small room in the north-central part of Pueblo Bonito, Room 28 is best known for the large assemblage of cylinder jars discarded in it. The UNM excavations reveal a complex history for the room, including use as an outdoor activity area perhaps under a ramada, construction of walls, remodeling, construction of shelving to hold the cylinder jars, and termination by burning. Ceramics, stratigraphy, radiocarbon and tree-ring dates provide the basis for understanding the sequence of use and abandonment. Backfill encountered in 2013 came from nearby rooms, providing information on construction and use of those rooms as well.
