Summary

TWO projects in one report:

Part 1: Archeological Testing at Six sites in Joshua Tree National Park, California Archeologists from the Western Archeological and Conservation Center (WACC), National Park Service (NPS), Tucson, Arizona, conducted archeological testing at six previously recorded sites in Joshua Tree National Park (JOTR) between May 10 and June 4, 1999. The sites lie within the area of potential effects of proposed Park road constrnction, Project PRA-JOTR-12(3), Route 12 - Park Boulevard and Barker Dam Road. The sites in the project area were recorded during previous surveys (JOTR 1968 A, 1975 A, 1975 B, 1975 C, 1979 A, 1985 C, 1991 A), and were identified for testing by Joshua Tree National Park staff members. Three sites are in the Hidden Valley Campground locality: CA-RIV-1940, CA-RIV-1942 and CA-RIV-92. The other three sites, CA-RIV -902, CA-RIV -903, CA-RIV -4293/H, are near Barker Dam.

Part 2: Data Recovery at Site CA-RIV-1942

Archeologists from the Western Archeological and Conservation Center (WACC), National Park Service (NPS), conducted archeological data recovery in Joshua Tree National Park (JOTR) at a prehistoric Native American site directly threatened by a Park road construction project (NPS Package Number JOTR 173-16). The site, CA-RIV-1942, was one of six sites tested previously during the WACC project, JOTR 1999 A (see Part I of this volume). Data recovery at site CA-RIV-1942 was recommended to assist the Park in meeting its compliance requirements under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), as amended.
