Virgin River 5 is made up of 8 smaller sites. All these site are located near the river just slightly above the floodplain.
Most of the sites that we found along this portion of the Virgin River consisted of pit houses with associated storage areas and what appeared to the ruins of pueblos. Most everything pictured dates somewhere between 300 BC and AD 1150. Bottom line... it's old.
Pit House: The ruins of a pit house will usually present itself as a circle with a depression in the center. The depression is where the roof collapsed in on itself. You will normally not see a rock ring or circle of rocks around the upper edge of the pit house.
Pueblo ruins: Can be square, round or circular, or rectangular, and may or may not be connected with other pueblos. In Nevada they are normally single story unlike their counterparts in the four corners region of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona which can be multiple stories. The ruins will normally present themselves as a square, circular, or rectangular rock patterns or outlines on the ground, and they may or may not be connected to each other.
