They made baskets, but had no pottery. Basketmaker II late A. Still no beans or pottery. The bow and arrow replaces the atlatl and spear.
Plain gray and some black-on-white pottery is made. Cultivation of beans begins. Deep pithouses still in use. Above-ground construction is generally of jacal or crude masonry. Plain pottery and gray with neck bands predominate; there is some black-on-white and decorated redware.

To supplement their meager harvests of farm crops, they roamed over the country periodically on hunting and gathering expeditions. During their absence, treasured articles and reserve supplies of food were cached in storage pits or cists, excavated in the dry floors of caves.
The cists were used not only for storage, but also as sepulchers, in which the dead were buried with accompanying mortuary offerings. In some of the cists the unintentionally mummified bodies of Basket Makers have been found, with hair and dehydrated flesh adhering to the bones.
