SWCA archaeologists carefully excavate the front of a large Pueblo I pit house in 2005. Evidence from the dig suggests a violent event including traits consistent with cannibalism occurred in this pit.
Painted redware vessel recovered in 2005 by SWCA from a Pueblo I period settlement in Ridges Basin from A.D. 750-820. This vessel, and others like it, were imported from the West, from as far away as southeastern Utah.
Project Director Jim Potter explains the excavation of an early Pueblo I pit house from AD 750-820 in Ridges Basin as part of the Animas-La Plata project while archaeologists continue their work. SWCA excavated 60 of these structures over four field seasons, from 2002 to 2005.
