Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-030: Excavations at Casa Bodega Hamlet (Site 5Mt2194), a Pueblo I Habitation Site

Author(s): Gary A. Brown

Year: 1982


Casa Bodega Hamlet (Site 5MT2194) is a Pueblo I habitation site excavated during the 1979 field season by the Dolores Archaeological Program (D.A.P.). The site is located in Montezuma County in southwestern Colorado. It was excavated as part of the D.A.P. sample of habitations from the West Sagehen Neighborhood, a dispersed Anasazi community in the Sagehen Flats Locality during the Sagehen Phase (A.D. 600-850, according D.A.P. systematics).

Excavations revealed a single household cluster consisting of a pithouse, three informal storage facilities, a peripheral work area, and a sheet trash area. Architecturally, the site is characteristic of the Sagehill Subphase (A.D. 600-760). The ceramic data, however, based on the occurrence of Moccasin Gray sherds, places the occupation of the hamlet between A.D. 775 and 850. The small number of features and artifacts and the small size of the pithouse suggest that the site was occupied by a small group, perhaps a nuclear family, for no more than a single generation.

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.
