Summary

Yucca Coil, Accession AZRU-00008, Catalog #2803. Morris FS 5353. Analyzed by Laurie Webster, 2006. Coil of yucca strips wrapped crosswise with same, enclosed by an outer wrapping of cornhusks.

Recovered from Earl Morris' excavation of Room 181, Aztec West Ruin. Morris described Room 181 as having a “considerable deposit of refuse…[continuing] well above the level of the third story…[Of the items found in the refuse deposits in the room] only two of the specimens are of special interest. One is a bird effigy of which the head was not found, the only one of its kind the writer has observed among later wares. The other, is the top of another bird effigy with head, wings, and tail in relief, and a T-shaped hole in the back…In the debris above the refuse was charcoal from a burned ceiling, presumably the third.” (Morris 1928:373)
