Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-037: Excavations at Horse Bone Camp (Site 5MT2199), an Archaic-Anasazi Limited Activity Site
Author(s): Gary A. Brown
Horse Bone Camp, Site 5MT2199, is a limited activity site believed to have been occupied during both the Archaic (3000 B.C.-A.D. 500) and Anasazi (A.D. 600-1200) time periods. On the basis of ceramic evidence, use of the site during the latter period appears to have spanned the Sagehen (A.D. 600-850), McPhee (A.D. 850-970), and Sundial (A.D. 1050-1200 ) phases according to Dolores Archaeological Program (D.A.P.) temporal systematics. Occupation of the site during both the Archaic and Anasazi periods probably consisted of brief, repeated episodes of use, the duration of which cannot be ascertained given available evidence. The types of artifacts recovered and the location of the site on a knoll overlooking nearby lowland areas suggest that Horse Bone Camp was associated with hunting activities.
Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. In 2015, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.
