Creator(s): Laurie Webster
Coiled Baskets, Accession AMNH29.0, Catalog #6878. Morris FS 487. CULTURALLY SENSITIVE: NAGPRA ARTIFACT; ACCESS RESTRICTED. Analyzed by Laurie Webster, 2006. Coiled basket fragments, 3 rod, bunched, double coiled, some with native repairs. Images: AMNH 29.0/6878A: coiled basket fragments with native repairs. AMNH 29.0/6878B: coiled basket fragments, left, fine weave, right, coarser weave. Recovered from Earl Morris' excavation of Room 37, Grave 10, Aztec West Ruin. Morris (1928:297) indicates that “upon the upper floor in Room 37 was a thin stratum of drift sand, then charcoal from the burned ceiling. A black-on-white bowl (29.0-6890) was inverted at the center of the floor, 10 feet from the south wall. A small red bowl with an animal's head in relief on one side (29.0-6889) was broken and scattered across the north end of the room and into the door into Room 41. In a cavity in the north wall was the head of an animal or bird effigy pot (29.0-6982). Burials Nos. 10 and 11 were on the upper floor at the north end of the room. The 1 foot 10 inch space between the floors was filled mostly with fallen wall material, among which were found an archaic bowl (29.0-6891) and a trough-shaped metate (29.0-6910).”
