A Temporary Structure
The crew found relatively few artifacts at all levels at this site, except in the gray level. This level exposed flakes, charcoal, small pieces of bone, and perhaps some fossilized bone. Byron suspects that the gray lense is a result of a small brush structure, like a wickiup, burning. Unfortunately rodents had badly damaged this cultural layer so lab results may not be very helpful.
According to Byron, the small number of identified artifacts at this site can indicate that the occupants kept the area clean, with the exception of the pit area, which is where most of the artifacts were located. Finally, rocks found at two corners of the site indicate that they may have served as supporters for the shelter's posts.
