1 Hogup Cave
Aikens, C. Melvin University of Utah Anthropological Papers 1999 Soft As new Quarto 
286 pp.; Long out of print, DANGER CAVE and HOGUP CAVE were milestones in Great Basin archaeological studies. Available again, these volumes explore Danger and Hogup caves, sites that though they are located about sixty miles apart in the Great Salt Lake Desert, are nevertheless archaeologically related. Containing fill dating from approximately 6,400 BC through historic times, the data from both caves present insights into the lifeways of successive peoples who, over thousands of years, adapted to changes in the desert environment. The result of well-controlled excavation methods done under difficult and demanding circumstances, both of these books include thorough scientific analysis of cultural materials and environmental data making them both essential studies of the Deseret West in New World prehistory.
