ABSTRACT During the 1979 field season, 9 sites were excavated. This was to provide information about the Sagehen Flats Locality during the Sagehen Phase. Investigation revealed 5 were limited activity sites and 4 were hamlets. Tres Bobos, Site 5MT4545, is a Basketmaker III habitation. Excavations discovered 1 pithouse and 14 surface rooms. Tres Bobos was occupied between A.D. 600-850. Apricot Hamlet, Site 5MT2858, is a multiple occupation Basketmaker III/Pueblo I site. Excavations revealed a pithouse and a pitstructure. The site was occupied between A.D. 635 and 680, and reoccupied between A.D. 750 and 800. Aldea Sierritas (Site 5MT2854) is an Anasazi hamlet. Investigation revealed 2 pithouses and 3 surface rooms. This occupation has been assigned to the transition between the Tres Hobos and Sagehill III Suhphases. Prairie Dog Hamlet, Site 5MT4614, dated to the late Basketmaker III-early Pueblo I periods. The site had 2 occupations (A.D. 600-760). Casa Bodega Hamlet (Site 5MT2194) is a Pueblo I habitation site. Excavations revealed a single household cluster consisting of a pithouse, 3 storage facilities, a work area, and a trash area. The ceramic data places occupation between A.D. 775 and 850. Dos Casas Hamlet (Site 5MT2193) is a Basketmaker III/Pueblo I site. Investigations recorded 2 pithouses, surface rooms, and occupation areas. Pithouse 1 was constructed around A.D. 760 and Pithouse 2 was constructed approximately 10 years later. Windy Wheat Hamlet (Site 5MT4644) is a Pueblo I site. Three elements, occurring between A.D. 740 and the early 800's, were recognized. Cascade House (Site 5MT4512) is a Pueblo I field house. A pithouse and pitroom and 2 masonryI jacal storage rooms were excavated. Cascade House appears to have been occupied during the ninth century A.D. Casa Roca, Site 5MT2203, is a seasonal, single-component site assigned to the McPhee Phase (A.D. 850-970).
