MPLP (2005) - Pithouse Period Occupations in the Eastern Mimbres Area: A Pilot Study on the A-Spear and Ladder Ranches

Summary

In summer 2005 the authors conducted a pilot study focused on gaining a better understanding of the intensity and duration of prehistoric occupation during the Pithouse Periods (A.D. 200-1000) in the eastern Mimbres area. Previous surveys identified a number of locations as pithouse sites or potential pithouse sites, but comparatively little data has been collected regarding site sizes or temporal periods represented at these locations. This information is critical for understanding ecological and social processes affecting subsequent Classic Mimbres and Reorganization Phase occupation and land use in the eastern Mimbres, as well as for comparing occupations in the area with other branches of the northern Mogollon culture.
