Dyck Dwelling Diet & Subsistence
Analysis of the remarkably well-preserved plant remains recovered from the Dyck Cliff Dwelling has expanded what is currently known about the food choices of the Southern Sinagua. A diversity of both wild and domesticated plants was available to the inhabitants of the Dyck Cliff Dwelling and they took advantage of the abundance of food offerings that nature provided in the relatively mild and well-watered environment of the Verde Valley. Compared to most other excavated Sinagua sites, the Dyck Cliff Dwelling plant assemblage is unique in its preservation and diversity of plant species.
