Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this research was to see if there were technological differences in ground stone manufacturing and use from a single site that had been occupied for over 600 years, A.D. 550-A.D. 1150, and had multiple occupations that evolved over time (Late Pithouse Phases, Georgetown, San Francisco, and Three Circle through the Classic Mimbres Period). An assessment of the ground stone assemblage was made based on a technological approach to analyzing ground stone. A general artifact code system listing attributes common in ground stone artifacts was created to use as a guide during the analysis phase. The information gathered from the examination of the ground stone assemblage was placed into a database for analysis. The site had been heavily vandalized prior to excavation and the data showed that 30.4 percent of the recovered ground stone artifacts came from this disturbed fill. Due to the disturbed context, there was not enough data recovered from undisturbed fill in the Late Pithouse units to make any substantial statements about technological change. However, an examination of the tool types within the different occupations indicates that tool types were similar from the earliest occupations, Georgetown (A.D. 550-650) to the latest, Classic Mimbres Pueblo (A.D. 1000-1150).
