Excerpt from Thirty-Third Annual Report of the Bureau of American Ethnology: To the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, 1911 1912

Late in August Mr. Hodge proceeded to New Mexico, and after a brief Visit to the archeological sites in the Rito de Los Frijoles, northwest of Santa Fe, where ex cavations were conducted in conjunction with the School of American Archaeology in 1911, continued to El Morro, or Inscription Rock, about 35 miles east of Zui'ii, for the purpose of making facsimile reproductions, or squeezes, of the Spanish inscriptions there, which have such an im portant bearing on the early history of the Pueblo tribes. El Morro is a picturesque eminence of sandstone rising from the sandy valley, and by reason of the former exist ence of a spring at its base, which is now merely a seep, it became an important camping place of the early Spaniards on their journeys to and from the Rio Grande and the Zufii and Hopi pueblo-s. The inscriptions of these early explorers were carved near the base of the rock, chiefly on the northern and southern sides of the highest portion of the mesa, and in the main consist of the names of the visitors with the dates of their visits, but in a number of cases elaborated with a more or less full statement of the object of the journey.
