Ovens Aren't Just for Food: Experimenting to Determine the Materials Used in a 19th Century Spanish Oven
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
In the summer of 2018, field school students from the University of New Mexico excavated historical ovens likely associated with the 19th century Spanish village of Tejón. During the course of the excavations, the field school undertook an experiment to determine the purpose of the historical ovens. The experiment was unable to be completed at that time, but samples of soil and local stones found in association with the ovens were taken for further experimentation during the Fall 2018 semester. This poster will show the results and analysis of the second experiment.
