Synthetic Cultural Resource Overview of the Bureau of Land Management’s Royal Gorge Field Office, Eastern Colorado. by Rand A. Greubel, Jack E. Pfertsh, Charles A. Reed, Michael J. Prouty, Sara A. Millward, Jeremy Omvig, Jaclyn Mullen, Matthew J. Landt, and Jonathon C. Horn
The BLM hired Alpine to complete a Class I overview and synthesis of cultural resources within the administrative boundary of the Royal Gorge Field Office (RGFO), which encompasses the entire eastern half of Colorado. The overview presents a synthetic description of the prehistoric archaeology of the RGFO. This is accomplished through concise summaries of the salient data presented in the 1999 prehistoric contexts for the Arkansas and Platte river basins, with accompanying discussions of archaeological work conducted since the publication of the contexts. The discussions are organized by problem domains such as chronology, technology, settlement patterns, interregional relationships, and subsistence, focusing on data gaps and the implications of recently obtained archaeological data. The resulting synthesis refines the models of prehistoric occupation of the region as presented in the 1999 contexts. In addition to the prehistoric synthesis, the document includes a lengthy chapter describing historical cultural resources present on BLM-managed lands within the RGFO. The information in the historical chapter provides context for archaeologists and historians working in the RGFO and includes discussions of data gaps and suggestions for future research.
Class I Cultural Resource Overview of the Bureau of Land Management’s Uncompahgre Field Office, Western Colorado. by Rand A. Greubel, Jaclyn Mullen, Matthew J. Landt, Jonathon C. Horn, and Alan D. Reed.
In 2010, Alpine conducted a Class I compilation and analysis of baseline cultural resource data for the BLM’s Uncompahgre Field Office, which encompasses much of the Uncompahgre Plateau and a large surrounding area extending from the West Elk Mountains on the east to the Utah state line on the west and from the Grand Mesa on the north to the San Juan Mountains on the south. The Class I report also includes a site sensitivity model developed for BLM management purposes. The description of cultural resources includes interpretations of past human behaviors and identifies data gaps and corresponding lines of needed research.
