Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This chapter examines the residential stability and use duration of the Duncan site and compares it to other Mogollon village sites. The authors also looked at architectural features, artifact diversity measures and plant use to determine when and for how long site was used. The evidence indicates that early pithouse villages do not necessarily represent year-round occupations. The Duncan site instead shows a low degree of residential stability and minimal rescue. It was apparently occupied 2-3 times during the summer and early fall in order to grow and harvest corn and then abandoned during the remainder of the year.
