When archaeologists excavated Mesa Verde in the late 19th century, they found a collection of mugs so vast that they named the discovery site the Mug House. Because artifacts like these are so rare and so intrinsic to our understanding of a past culture, according to preservation law, prehistoric archaeological artifacts are actually considered a part of the built environment -- something typically reserved for architecture.
