The Dead Man’s Cave Gulch Cache: Strategies for Historic Caches

by Axelrod, Ella Nicole

Abstract

Historical Archaeology is a discipline informed by research in the archaeological and documentary record. However, the details of the research process for historical assemblages are not often documented in a way that can be applied to other cases. This paper discusses the methodological and research strategies used in the study of the Dead Man’s Cave Gulch (DMCG) cache. Little has been written on historic caches and further documentation is merited. Beginning with presenting the context of research strategies in historic archaeology and previous research on caches, this paper will outline resources available for researchers, including resources in the state of Colorado. Finally, it will present the results of the DMCG cache study.
