Wheatley Ridge

In 1939 the Logan Museum conducted field work at Wheatley Ridge, 4 miles west of Reserve, New Mexico. Nine pitrooms and one surface pueblo were uncovered. The pitrooms were irregularly situated about the site, while the surface room was located at some distance from the rest. Fourteen burials were unearthed, four being definitely associated with the pithouses, although the remainder were also dispersed in the area of the pitrooms, away from the surface structure. Only three of these burials contained mortuary offerings. Numerous stone artifacts were recovered, as well as a small number of utensils and jewelry items.
