Tso'bito Pueblito

The Tso'bito (Big Man's Water) Pueblito is a six room pueblito on top of a boulder on a valley floor of a tributary drainage to Jasis Canyon.

Ceramic Assemblage: Only Dinetah Gray wares were observed at the site (personal observation 2017).

Tree-ring Analysis: A total of four samples have been collected from the pueblito. Wood species identified consisted of pinyon and juniper. Two of the four samples showed evidence of metal ax use. Due to such few samples, the best estimate is that the pueblito was likely built sometime after 1726 (Towner 1997).
