Jaramillo Canyon Pueblito

Jaramillo Canyon Pueblito Map
Located near the head of a small side rincon off of Jaramillo Canyon, this pueblito is a single room structure built against a large boulder. The site is unusual in that it is built on the valley floor and not on a boulder or defensible location (Towner 1997).

Ceramic Assemblage: Field observations noted only Dinetah Gray ceramics (Towner 1997).

Tree-ring Analysis: Three samples were collected from the doorway lintel. Species were pinon and there was no evidence of metal ax use on the samples, although this interpretation is problematic since the ends of the beams could not be viewed. The tree-ring dates indicate that the pueblito was constructed in 1731 (Towner 1997).
