Abstract : Excavation of the Wupatki Blowhole site revealed four occupation areas within a 120-m area. Ceramics, petroglyphs, masonry, and other evidence suggest a twelfth-century occupancy. That the nearby blowholes affected the inhabitant's choice of sites seems unquestionable, but further excavations should be undertaken, both to clarify this point, and to gain a variety of ecological and geochronological data.
