Abstract

Total excavation of a seventh century A.D. Basketmaker III village revealed an arrangement of semisubterranean earth and timber houses, storage pits and structures, and ramadas surrounded by a wooden stockade. In addition to several practical functions including defense, windbreak, and containing young children, the stockade demarcated the village boundary. The complete village plan further enhances our knowledge of Pueblo Indian culture history.
