Summary

Cotton Cloth, Accession AMNH29.0, Catalog #9670. Morris FS 3155. CULTURALLY SENSITIVE, NAGPRA ARTIFACT; ACCESS RESTRICTED. Analyzed by Laurie Webster, 2006. Deteriorated 1/1 plain weave cotton cloth. Image: AMNH 29.0-9670A: deteriorated cotton plain-weave cloth. Recovered from Earl Morris' excavation of Room 141, Grave 29. Earl Morris’ description of Room 141 at the time of excavation is as follows. “Neither floor nor ceiling of Room 141 showed the slightest discoloration such as would have resulted from use as a living chamber…The ceiling support is one large pine log, extending north and south; the small poles are of cottonwood, spaced in threes. There is a ventilator opening in each end of the north wall about 2 feet below the timbers. Both the east and west walls are pierced by holes made by relic hunters many years ago” (Morris 1928:370).
