Goodman Point Archeological Project

Crow Canyon Archeological Center was awarded a grant for studying the Goodman Point unit of Hovenweep National Monument.  This unit was the first prehistoric archeological site set aside for protection in the United States when it was withdrawn from homesteading in 1889.  As a result, Goodman Point is one of the best preserved archeological areas anywhere in the world. Tree-ring dating is the most critical component of the project.  These dates allow archaeologists to determine the exact years when buildings were constructed and remodeled.  These dates also provide information about when the site was abandoned.
