Chocolate, Cylinder Jars, and Ritual in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico

The excavation, analysis, and interpretation of archaeological remains for further evidence about the ritual use of cylinder jars in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico between 1000 and 1140 AD. (36 months)

Recently discovered chocolate residues in cylinder jars raise questions about ritual activity in Pueblo Bonito, Chaco Canyon. Project activities include reexcavation of Room 28 in Pueblo Bonito to obtain dates and residues from the room that held a cache of over 60 percent of all known cylinder jars, and reanalysis of museum collections removed from that room in 1896. The project addresses the Bridging Cultures initiative by exploring ritual and cultural interaction in the past.
