We're happy to announce the publication of our most recent Southwestern Lore publication (Vol. 77, No. 4 Winter 2011) entitled The 120th Avenue Burial (5AM1733), Adams County, Colorado.

Abstract: The 120th Avenue Burial (5AM1733) was discovered in the spring of 2004 during construction of the 120th Avenue Extension in western Adams County, Colorado. The site is located on the irregular crest of a ridge that overlooks the floodplain of the South Platte River from the northwest. An AMS radiocarbon assay on charcoal flecking within the pit returned a conventional date of 2060 ± 40 B.P., with a calibrated 2-Sigma range of 180 B.C. to A.D. 30. The radiometric date and morphology of two stemmed bifaces indicate that the burial is of Late Archaic age. The burial appears to be a primary interment of an adult male, probably in excess of 50 years old at the time of death, in a small ovate pit of unknown total depth.
