Artifact Density Analysis

The maps below represent the architectural and ceramic distributions for the Area A-10 meter interval shovel tests. The highest concentrations for both architectural artifacts and ceramics are located within the general vicinity of Block 1, Units 3-6 (pictured in previous blog update). The shovel test data corresponds very well with the placement of Block 1. The locations of the sandstone structural features and artifact concentrations (using both shovel test and unit data) suggest that we have located the interior and exterior of a residence.

The architectural concentrations clearly surround the exterior of the structure (outside the sandstone corner features). Ceramic concentrations occurred in both the exterior and interior areas of the proposed structure.
