Bob McBride in Snider's Well. The house foundation that we found and recorded today is located about 40 meters east of Snider's Well and about 15 meters east of our Survey Area on the Karwick property. It consisted of 29 sandstone slabs in rough rectangular alignment measuring 4.5x5 meters (Feature 1). Fred indicated that this was Snider's homestead (circa 1890) and that Fred had photo's of this place showing a white wooden structure and that he might be willing to let us use the in our report. Nothing is left where this structure once stood other than the sandstone slabs, a wooden post, and artifacts. There were a total of 48 artifacts in the immediate vicinity of the foundation mostly small window pane glass shards. Some purple glass bottles shards found are datable. Both square and machine made nails were present. Brown and green glass was also present and a small phenolic button. East of the house foundation a few meters was a pit which Fred believed to be an outhouse (Feature 2), but no structure remained only a few sandstone slabs.
The area surrounding the house and intermixed with the above historic artifacts are puebloan artifacts and a double kiva depression (Fearure 3) each measuring 7 meter diameter and 0.5 meters deep. Artifacts recorded: 47 pottery sherds and 33 flakes. All of the 33 diagnostic sherds were PIII (A.D. 1150-1300) .
On the second transect we found another Kiva (Feature 4) measuring 10m dia x 1.2m deep. This dia is associated with the minimum size of a great kiva. Artifacts associated with this kiva indicate a date of PIII (A.D. 1150-1300). Both of the kiva features, 3&4, had no associated room blocks or other structures above ground. Both were on top of a narrow ridge running to the southeast. Both were separated by only 35 m.
We completed three N-S transects with a 5 m spacing between us. This is tighter spacing than our usual 15 m spacing because of the rocky ground clutter makes it difficult to spot artifacts. This spacing seem to work well.
