This database contains field and laboratory data from Crow Canyon's investigations. Some data are presented at the site level, but most are organized and presented by study unit. Study units have both administrative and interpretive dimensions. Whenever possible, a study unit represents an episode of past human activity that can be defined and examined as such. Thus, we assign a separate study unit to each trash deposit, human construction, and architectural space encountered at a site. When we have no basis for inferring the behavioral significance of an area or deposit, however, we define study units primarily for record-keeping purposes.
Once a specific study unit is chosen, a variety of data are available, including:
Interpretive text and reports by specialists are also available for sites Crow Canyon has excavated. Check out our list of on-line research publications to access these. Also, a variety of additional data, some of which are not available in this site-specific database, are available on-line in our multi-site Research Database.
