Summary

Carbonized Yarn, Accession AMNH29.0, Catalog #7996. Morris FS 1573. CULTURALLY SENSITIVE: NAGPRA ARTIFACT; ACCESS RESTRICTED. Analyzed by Laurie Webster, 2006. Carbonized cotton yarn, plied, 2Z-S weave. Image: AMNH 29.0/7996A: carbonized cotton yarn. Recovered from Earl Morris' excavation of Room 41, Grave 16, Aztec West Ruin. Morris (1928:300) indicates that “Conditions in Room 41 are given in the description of Burial 16.1 (see Morris 1924:155). The conflagration which so badly damaged the accompaniments of this burial produced heat sufficient to burn portions of the walls a brick red to a depth of 6 inches, and to harden the adobe plaster so that a good deal of it remains in place.” Reference: Earl Morris, 1928, Notes on Excavations in the Aztec Ruin, Volume XXVI, Part V, Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History, New York.
