Title: Excavations on Mesita de los Alamos

Abstract

When the Clinton P. Anderson Meson Physics Facility was in the planning stage, several pre-Columbian Indian sites were discovered in the project area. The late Frederick C.V. Worman of the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) staff was asked to make salvage excavations at the sites. The digs were undertaken in 1965 and 1968. At the time of Worman's death in 1971, he was working on a report of the excavations. Unfortunately, the only portion of his manuscript to be found was the analysis of pottery sherds and a few notes concerning the sites. This report includes the pottery analysis made by Worman. Brief discussions about the sites and about the recovered artifacts are by Steen, made from Worman's notes.
