dc.description.abstractThis volume is a collection of the basic planning and management documents for the Dolores Archaeological Program. The first chapter introduces the volume and provides an evaluation of the effectiveness of Dolores Archaeological Program planning efforts. Operational problems encountered by the program are also discussed. The second chapter is the "Dolores Project Cultural Resources Mitigation Design," the primary document guiding program conceptual management. The two major parts of this chapter are the research design, a general structure of inquiry for conducting investigations, and the implementation design, a presentation of methods for acquiring the information needed to answer questions posed in the research design. Four subsequent chapters provide discussions of approaches to specific data sets. These four chapters -the midlevel research designs for survey, reductive technologies, additive technologies, and environmental archaeology -provide the basis for the analyses of settlement patterns and material culture. The final four chapters are a selection of reports focusing on Dolores Archaeological Program survey efforts. Two reports discuss the results of inventory survey and two reports present the results of probability surveys. Included in these survey chapters are discussions of data collection, settlement behavior, site location analysis, and methods of estimating site populations. Specific locality estimates of site population based on probability sampling techniques are provided; a study of rock art in the Dolores Project area is also summarized.en_US
