Description: Robert S. Harris looking through the eyepiece of an alidade. The crew did a fairly thorough survey of a limited area surrounding the Citadel, and they used survey instruments to plot sites, which was quite a breakthrough in the accuracy of site locational techniques. Many of the same sites they recorded in 1933-34 were successfully relocated during the Wupatki Inventory survey in the 1980s.

Date: 1933-1934.

Collection: Wupatki National Monument (Catalog No. WUPA 19728).
