This volume of the Animas-La Plata series describes the results of excavations at 12 sites in the eastern end of the Ridges Basin approximately 2 miles south of Durango, Colorado, as part of the Animas-La Plata (ALP) Project. Between 2002 and 2005 SWCA excavated these sites, all of which dated to the early Pueblo I period (AD 750-825). All of the sites in the Eastern Basin were small habitation sites consisting of one or two pit structures with associated surface structures, extramural features, and middens. The volume is concluded with a summary discussion of chronology, architecture, material culture, population, subsistence, and settlement within both local and regional cultural contexts.
