Abstract:

A total of 325 archeological sites were documented during surveys of Cochiti Reservoir. Detailed summaries of environmental, architectural, and artifactual variability are presented for each site location. Major occupational periods are Late Archaic, 800 b.c. to A.D. 400, Anasazi, A.D. 600 to 1600, and Historic, ca. A.D. 1540 to present. Most sites are non-structural artifact scatters, frequently associated with hearths, or small one to three room structural sites. One pueblo of 200-400 rooms was recorded. Additional classes of sites include shelters, depressions terraces, corrals, pens, and petroglyphs. Regional and temporal variabilities can be isolated among the kinds of seasonal, short-term subsistence-related activities represented at sites within a restricted ecological context.
