Excavations at San Antonio de Padua (LA24), Bernalillo County, New Mexico


At the request of the New Mexico State Highway and Transportation Department

(NMSHTD, which became the New Mexico Department of Transportation—NMDOT— on July 1, 2003), the Office of Archaeological Studies undertook data recovery excavations at LA 24 in an area where NMDOT proposed to remove portions of a midden to improve the line of sight on an unimproved road leading to a church and a residential area. Excavations in November and December of 1992 included controlled excavation of trenches, grids, and features, and backhoe scraping to search for additional features. The

midden area contained few formal features. Those found date from the Classic through historic periods. Data recovery and monitoring of the construction in March of 1993 uncovered three human burials. The large artifact sample from this area of the midden provides additional information on the history and use of LA 24.
