Located on the far northwestern edge of the Colorado Plateaus, the Mt. Dellenbaugh frontier would have been a remote and challenging area to live in. Despite these challenges, research indicates that the area was occupied by farmers associated with the Virgin River Puebloan (VRP) culture. To investigate the nature of this occupation, the University of Nevada Las is conducting a series of ongoing field schools here. This paper explores what we have learned to date about the nature of the VRP settlement, including issues relating to settlement shifts, seasonality, subsistence, and the nature of the abandonment of the pueblos.
