Upper Plum Canyon Rock Shelter 1 Artifacts
The collection includes well preserved perishables made from bone, wood, hide and other vegetal materials, as well as site records, slides, photos, and maps. Detailed descriptive analyses have been made on the lithics, groundstone, faunal materials, and macrofloral materials. The macrofloral analysis is particularly extensive. The results of the excavations are reported in the Master's thesis (1984) of Diane Rhodes, on file at History Colorado. See item by item inventory for the boxes in Attached Files.
Using a grant from the Colorado Historical Society, the Colorado Archaeological Society (CAS) sponsored excavations at 5LA2158 (Upper Plum Canyon Rock Shelter 1), May-July 1981. This was the first permitted excavation under the State permitting system. The materials were donated to Colorado Historical Society by Lonnie and Wilma Jackson, on whose property the rock shelter was round.
