Archaeological Investigations of Early Village Sites in the Middle Santa Cruz Valley, Analyses and Synthesis, Part I (1998)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Uploaded by: adam brin

A series of archaeological investigations were conducted from 1993 to 1995 at four prehistoric sites in the middle Santa Cruz Valley. This fieldwork was part of the Arizona Department of Transportation's archaeological mitigation program of the Interstate 10 Corridor Improvement Project through Tucson, Arizona. The sites included the remains of three early farming settlements--the Santa Cruz Bend (AZ AA:12:746 [ASM]), Square Hearth (AZ AA:12:745 [ASM]), and Stone Pipe (AZ BB:13:425 [ASM])...

As part of the archaeological mitigation program of the Arizona Department of Transportation's Interstate 10 Corridor Improvement Project, archaeological data recovery fieldwork was carried out from 1993 to 1995 at four prehistoric sites in the project right-of-way between Prince Road and Speedway Boulevard in Tucson. The sites included three early farming settlements occupied between about 800 B.C. and A.D. 550, and also having later occupations. The Santa Cruz Bend site (AZ AA:12:746, ASM) was...


Distance in Space and Time: Issues with a Mortuary Database of the First Farmers in the Southern Southwest (2011)
DOCUMENT Full-Text James Watson.

This paper describes issues associated with the construction of a biocultural database from samples of the earliest farmers from the southern Southwest and northwest Mexico. Currently over a dozen archaeological sites dating to the Early Agricultural period (circa 1,600 B.C.-A.D. 150) have produced a large sample of mortuary features (n = 431). These samples, and thereby the data, face unique challenges in interpretation compared to similar large data sets in that the materials (sites, features,...


Southwest Mortuary Database Project: 2011 SAA E-Session: Mortuary Practices in the American Southwest: Meta-Data Issues in the Development of a Regional Database
PROJECT Gordon Rakita. M Scott Thompson.

The study of prehistoric mortuary practices in the American Southwest is undergoing tremendous change in the new millennium. The challenges (and opportunities) of NAGPRA implementation, declines in the number of large samples being excavated, and loss of data from previously excavated samples have altered mortuary archaeology in the region. Given this state of affairs, the development of an integrated regional database of prehistoric mortuary practices is imperative. This session at the 76th...


Watson_Early Ag Period in the Sonoran Desert_Mortuary and Biological Data (2011)
DATASET James Watson.

In this data set, Watson presents mortuary and biological data for a sample (n = 431) of Early Agriculural period (1,600 B.C - 150 A.D.) burial features excavated at 12 archaeological sites in southeastern Arizona and northern Sonora, Mexico. Variables include age, sex, body position, body orientation, material accompaniments, trauma, and several paleopathological conditions.
