Abstract : Eight archeological sites on the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site were excavated and evaluated for potential nomination to the National Register of Historic Places in the summer of 1994. These sites date from the first millennium B.C. to the Historic Period. The sites show evidence for use of different environmental zones in the PCMS through a wide spectrum hunting-and-gathering subsistence strategy, as well as the use of local lithic resources. The evaluative work at these sites, supplemented by specialized pollen analysis, as well as radiocarbon and obsidian hydration dating assays, contributes to our understanding of the archaeology not only of the PCMS but of southeastern Colorado in general.
