Abstract : This report details archaeological investigations for the Tobin Well project area located approximately 1 kilometer north of Biggs Army Airfield. Work involved survey, mapping, and subsurface testing of 1.08 square kilometers and subsequent analysis and write up of the collected data. Though the quality of the fieldwork was variable, analyses indicate a possible adaptive shift about A.D. 500 and peaking between A.D. 1100 and 1200. The possible cause of this shift is unknown, but it is suggested that climate, population increase, and other related variables may have played a role.
