ABSTRACT
A chapter from the book "Archaeological Investigations at the Ken-Caryl Ranch, Colorado" is presented. It focuses on Crescent Site (5JF148) located about one-quarter mile north of Deer Creek, which is classified as a rockshelter. A brief overview of excavations in Crescent Site during 1980 and 1983 is offered. An absence of eastern extension to the site, difficulty in recovering an Archaic burial and two radiocarbon dates from the dig in 1980 resulted in the modification of the 1982 dig plan.
