UUAP 093: Hogup Cave

University of Utah Anthropological Paper 93

C. Melvin Aikens

University of Utah Anthropological Papers

Jesse D. Jennings, series editor

Anthropology / Archaeology

A classic in Great Basin archaeology, this volume documents evidence for a hand-to-mouth existence going back to 6,000 BC.

Danger Caver and Hogup Cave were milestones in Great Basin archaeological studies. Although approximately sixty miles of Great Salt Lake desert separates these two sites, the caves are archaeologically related. Containing fill dating from approximately 6,4000 B.C. through historic times, the data from both caves present insights into the lifeways of successive people who, over thousands of years, adapted to changes in the desert environment.

The result of well-controlled excavation methods done under difficult and demanding circumstances, both books include thorough scientific analysis of cultural materials and environmental data. Both are essential studies of the desert west in New World prehistory.

The Anthropological Papers series is published on-demand on the Espresso Book Machine at the J. Willard Marriott Library of the University of Utah. No returns will be accepted.
