Abstract

An inventory of sites in the highland basin of Devils Park in westcentral New Mexico indicates a long-term occupation from Paleoindian to Puebloan periods. Data for Preceramic period and Pit House period settlement are limited in extent but suggest that use of the Park expanded during the Reserve phase (ca. A.D. 1000 to 1150). A dispersed system of one-room and small multi-room farmsteads is closely correlated with potential pockets of arable land as well as with communal structures distributed throughout the park. Abandonment appears to have occurred at the end of the Reserve phase, reflecting major changes in regional settlement dynamics documented elsewhere in the Reserve, New Mexico area.
