Example text

Of the many reasons for initiating investigations at Bull Creek, one is to be found in Marwitt's delineation of regional and temporal variation and in the central question of the time: What is Fremont? His San Rafael variant, as can be seen from Figure 1, covers most of the eastern portion of the Fremont area, yet until the Bull Creek investigations only a few sites had ever been excavated (Morss 1931; Gillin 1938; Wormington 1955). Others had been surveyed or tested. However, when it comes to a determination of characteristic features or artifacts in the San Rafael variant, Marwitt bemoans the lack of excavation and the wide range of variation in artifact types.

The Structure 3 readings, therefore, are not inconsistent. The earliest sites (Playa, Hillside Cache, Basket Hut) are found in the northern end of the study area, tenuously supporting Hunt's hypothesis. That the two most recent sites are found in the middle reaches of the valley and not farther south may indicate that the perennial water supply did not withdraw completely from the valley before its abandonment. Thus we cannot definitely postulate a gradual north to south withdrawal of the population and final abandonment; the southernmost sites are not the youngest, although the northern sites are the oldest.

Hunt, Basket Hut, Alice Hunt, Playa, and possibly 42Wn1002. , charcoal covered by colluvium, were 42Wn975 and 981. The so-called non-sitesones which yielded data only on sedimentation and alluviation (see Fig. 9)were 42Wn970, 959, 974, 233, and 1000. Hillside Cache proved to be a cluster of slab-lined storage cists. Geomorphological Sites The two locations where radiocarbon dating of geomorphological processes was possible (sites 42Wn975 and 981) are particularly interesting.
