Dolores style corrugated, small jar, Accession 29.0, Catalog #9691. Morris FS 3176. CULTURALLY SENSITIVE: NAGPRA ARTIFACT; ACCESS RESTRICTED Analyzed by Lori Reed 2004. Temper is granular igneous rock indicating local production at Aztec. Jar 95% complete; rim is broken. Image AMNH 29.0/9691 A: top view showing orifice and unknown perishable material inside. Image AMNH 29.0/9691 B: exterior side view showing shape of jar and lightly obliterated indented corrugations. Recovered from Earl Morris excavation of Room 138, Grave 31, Aztec West Ruin. Earl Morris’ description of Room 138 at the time of excavation is as follows: “On the floor of Room 138 was a film of refuse containing Chaco potsherds…Thence upward, mixed with dust, wall wreckage, and rubbish from a deposit which had been in the second story, there was an almost inextricable tangle of pine timbers, splints, and cedar bark. There had been no fire above this area and all three ceilings had fallen into the first story room. Having been deeply buried, the wood was perfectly preserved. All of the ceilings had been of the same pattern: two pine log supports with pine poles resting upon them. As has been the case wherever observations have been possible, the supports of the successive ceilings were smaller than those of the ones beneath.”(Morris 1928:389).
