Aztec West Ruin: Perishables and Pottery from Various National Park Service Projects and Collections
This project includes images of perishable artifacts (textiles, basketry, etc.) and pottery recovered from Aztec Ruins during the course of numerous National Park Service (NPS) projects. Some of the artifacts were donated to the NPS and may have originated at sites other than Aztec Ruins. The artifacts are part of the NPS collections and are housed at either Aztec Ruins National Monument, Hibben Center at the University of New Mexico, or Western Archeology and Conservation Center. Most of the NPS projects involved testing or excavation associated with wall stabilization or redirecting water drainage through rooms or the plaza. Some of the images included in this project are of unprovenienced artifacts from West Ruin donated to the park by various individuals since the 1920s.
