Included here are four chapters authored or co-authored by William D. Lipe as part of the Sand Canyon Archaeological Project: A Progress Report. The introduction to the report reads: “The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center of Cortez, Colorado, is pursuing a continuing research program focused on the Anasazi occupation of the Sand Canyon locality in southwestern Colorado (Figures 1.1 and 1.2) during the Pueblo III period (A.D. 1150-1300). Project fieldwork began in 1983 and will continue through 1994. The fieldwork includes environmental studies, intensive and sample-based surface surveys, oral history, small-scale test excavations at a number of sites, and intensive excavations at portions of a few sites, including Sand Canyon Pueblo (5MT765) and the Green Lizard site (5MT3901). Sand Canyon Pueblo is the largest thirteenth-century settlement in the locality (see Bradley, this volume). This apparent single-component, walled site has approximately 420 surface rooms, 90 kivas, 14 towers, a D-shaped hiwalled structure, and a great kiva.”
