The Sand Canyon Archaeological Project: Site Testing [Mark D. Varien] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Ancient Puebloan communities thrived in the Mesa Verde region for centuries, and the abandonment of this area by Puebloan peoples remains an intriguing subject of archaeological research.

Environmental change. The publication of The Sand Canyon Archaeological Project: Site Testing represents a milestone in both the research and publication programs of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center.

It is a milestone in research because it marks a shift in focus from the single site to the community, locality, and region. Published in CD-ROM format, The Sand Canyon Archaeological Project: Site Testing presents a detailed chronological reconstruction of community settlement patterns, develops new methods for measuring the length and season of site occupation, and examines site-formation processes in an effort to better understand the details of individual site.

Site testing was designed to bridge the gap between the archaeological survey of the Sand Canyon locality and the intensive excavations of two sites, Sand Canyon Pueblo and Green Lizard. The careful attention to sampling, which ensured comparability among the 13 sites, makes this project the most detailed study available for Pueblo III.
