Abstract:

The purpose of this evaluation of the Las Cruces Arroyo Lithic Site, El Paso Centennial Museum number 32106103, has been to evaluate the cultural and historical resources of the site and to make recommendations relative to their conservation prior to the destruction of the site as a result of the construction of the Las Cruces Dam, a part of the Las Cruces Local Protection Project of the U.S. Corps of Engineers. As a result of the test excavations reported here it is concluded that the evidence of occupation is quite shallow sparcely distributed over the site and that further excavation is not warranted.
