Abstract:

In March, 1979, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began to repair levees along the major drainages in southwestern New Mexico which had been damaged by floods in December, 1978. The Cultural Resources Management Division of New Mexico State University was contracted to monitor levee construction to alleviate effects of construction on cultural resources. A total of 34 archeological sites were identified. Of these, thirty were avoided, two were tested and partially avoided, and two were excavated prior to destruction. This report describes survey procedures and reports on data obtained from the excavations. Author
