Archival Survey Feature or Collection Forms (2012)
These are pdf files of the original survey feature/collection forms. Each survey feature was recorded on a form and assigned a unique number, and, if the feature was collected, that number pertains to the surface collection.

Rarely numbers were subsequently de-assigned, and might then be assigned to a different feature/collection later, but occasionally numbers were not used...

Recommendations for the treatment or avoidance of sites are offered for future management considerations. The survey resulted in the discovery of 1 previously recorded...
A Cultural Resources Survey of 84.3 Acres of Tonto National Forest and Private Lands for the SRP Silver King to Goldfield 230kV Upgrade, North of Superior, Pinal County, Arizona (2008)
SRP is planning to upgrade the current carrying capacity of 18.3 miles of the existing Silver King to Goldfield 230kV line. In order to accomplish this, SRP plans to “bundle” the existing 230kV conductors by adding a second conductor to each of the three existing single-conductor phases. To add the new conductors, SRP will need to re-open some original access roads, and the selected wire, puller, sleeving, and anchor sites used during the original 1978 line construction. The existing...

Marshland of Cities: Deltaic Landscapes and the Evolution of Early Mesopotamian Civilization (2003)
Prevailing theories of the evolution of early complex societies in southern Mesopotamia presume a uniform, arid landscape transited by Tigris and Euphrates distributaries. These theories hold that it was the seventh millennium BCE introduction of irrigation technologies from the northern alluvium to the south that began the punctuated evolution of Mesopotamian irrigation schemes. In this view, irrigation-dependent agro-pastoral production was the primary stimulus to urbanization and, millennia...
