2007 Archaeological Survey: Perry Mesa, Yavapai County, Arizona (2007)
The Arizona State University (ASU) 2007 field season at Perry Mesa lasted from January to May, 2007. Accompanying laboratory efforts are ongoing. Within this field season, archaeological survey efforts were focused on the area surrounding Pueblo la Plata. Additional survey work was conducted at Bull Tank Farm, Pueblo Pato and the interfluve located south of Pueblo la Plata where ecological control samples have been collected. This chapter relates specifically to architectural features and...
3D Scanning and Documentation of Rockart Features on Petroglyph Trail at Chaco Culture National Historical Park
In this project, the Leica C10 and Breuckmann SmartScanHE were used to document petroglyphs and the associated cliff face located on Petroglyph Trail between Pueblo Bonito and Chetro Ketl in Chaco Culture National Historical Park. The Leica Scanstation C10 scanner was used be to scan the lower cliff wall along the petroglyph trail (approximately 1 km long) at an average resolution of 0.5 – 3 cm. Moderate resolution data for the panels was also captured using a Leica C10 scanner at a resolution...

Agave Typologies of Richinbar, Pueblo la Plata, and Pueblo Pato Archaeological Sites of Agua Fria National Monument (2004)
The purpose of this paper is to examine the agave surrounding three different pueblos located in the Agua Fria National Monument and to separate them into typologies which can then be compared to known species in the area to determine weather hyrbridiaztion had occurred. This analysis will help determine whether agaves on these three fields have been hybridized, either intentionally by early inhabitants, or by natural occurrences. This is done by placing the plants into groups based on...
Agricultural Impacts on Soil Compaction and Sediment Size (2005)
Many activities affect soil composition, wind, rain, volcanic activity, time, and mammals are just a few examples. Humans are one of the many organisms that affect soil; however they have a measurable impact in a short horizon of time compared to many of the other agents of soil formation. Human activities impact soil formation in many ways ranging from agricultural practices to building and mining, and even war. Understanding how agricultural processes impact the landscape is helpful as it...
The Agricultural Landscape of Perry Mesa: Modeling Residential Site Location in Relation to Arable Land (2007)
The prevailing interpretations of settlement patterns in the Perry Mesa region of central Arizona (ca. A.D. 1275-1400) focus on the defensive posture of the large aggregated villages. Other factors that may have influenced the locations of residential settlements, such as the distribution of agricultural land, have not been fully explored. This study addresses these issues by examining the relationship between residential site size and the distribution of agricultural land. The environmental...

Alliance and Landscape - Perry Mesa, Arizona in the Fourteenth Century: Surface Ceramic Collections for BLM Lands in the Agua Fria National Monument (2010)
Project Description: Archaeological ceramics were systematically collected from the surface of three archaeological sites (Richinbar Ruin, Pueblo Pato, and Pueblo La Plata) within the Agua Fria National Monument. The fieldwork was part of the National Science Foundation sponsored “Alliance and Landscape: Perry Mesa, Arizona in the Fourteenth Century” project (BCS-0613201), administered by Dr. David R. Abbott and Dr. Katherine Spielmann of the Arizona State University School of Human Evolution...
Alliance and Landscape: Perry Mesa, Arizona in the Fourteenth Century: Surface Ceramic Collections for USFS Lands in the Cave Creek and Payson Ranger Districts of the Tonto National Forest (2010)
Archaeological ceramics were systematically collected from the surface of five archaeological sites (Las Mujeres [aka Squaw Creek Ruin], Big Rosalie, Polles Pueblo, Mercer Ruin, Ister Flat Ruin) within the Tonto National Forest. The fieldwork was part of the National Science Foundation sponsored “Alliance and Landscape: Perry Mesa, Arizona in the Fourteenth Century” project (BCS-0613201), administered by Dr. David R. Abbott and Dr. Katherine Spielmann of the Arizona State University School of...

The Ancient Agroecology of Perry Mesa: Integrating Runoff, Nutrients, and Climate (2013)
Understanding agricultural land use requires the integration of natural factors, such as climate and nutrients, as well as human factors, such as agricultural intensification. Employing an agroecological framework, I use the Perry Mesa landscape, located in central Arizona, as a case study to explore the intersection of these factors to investigate prehistoric agriculture from A.D. 1275-1450. Ancient Perry Mesa farmers used a runoff agricultural strategy and constructed extensive alignments,...
Archaeological Research at Pueblo la Plata: Surface Collection and Excavation (2004)
The spring 2004 pilot archaeological research at La Plata Pueblo was designed to begin acquiring data concerning the distribution, contents, and depth of midden deposits at the site. Midden of some depth is necessary for the Legacies project goals in order to obtain sufficient samples of 1) ceramics for an accumulations study and 2) well-preserved faunal and floral remains for comparative analysis with contemporary data on plant and animal distributions. Our data collection strategy involved a...
The Archaeology of Tuzigoot National Monument and Montezuma Castle National Monument
WACC reports of archaeological excavation and survey projects within and near Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments and the Middle Verde Valley in general, Yavapai County, Arizona.
Archeological Survey and Architectural Study of Montezuma Castle National Monument (1988)
Inventory survey of Montezuma Castle National Monument was conducted from April 11 to May 7, 1988. Of the 70 sites recorded, 30 were new additions to the site inventory. Cliff dwellings, rockshelters and pueblos were recorded along with one and two-room masonry structures, roasting pits and artifact scatters. Agricultural feature sites include the canals at Montezuma Well. A site with prehistoric cobble concentrations, a burial ground, a bedrock mortar site, a lithic scatter, a historical site...
Arizona State University: 1988 and 1990 Field Season Survey, Preliminary Reports (1991)
The 1988 and 1990 Arizona State University archaeological field schools were part of a continuing, long term research project in and around the Zuni Indian Reservation of west central New Mexico. This is a preliminary report on these two seasons. In addition to survey, excavation was carried out at two sites, the Hinkson Ranch Site and Heshotauthla. These excavations will be reported on elsewhere and are not the subject of this report other than a brief statement of their relationship to the...
Artifact and Rock Distributions at Pueblo la Plata (2004)
Artifact and rock distributions were noticeably different across the landscape surrounding Pueblo La Plata. By sampling artifact and rock densities along three transects, we attempted to determine what the independent distribution patterns were for artifacts and for rocks. By combining our results, we hoped to see whether or not there was a correlation between artifact and rock densities across the site. We expected to see a drop in artifact densities farther from the pueblo, where less human...
