Pueblo Grande (AZ U:9:1(ASM)): Unit 12, Gateway and 44th Streets: SSI Kitchell Testing, Provenience Designation (PD) Data

Summary

The Kitchell Testing Provenience Designation (PD) data sheet summarizes the PD's excavated during a preliminary testing phase of a parcel of land owned by the Kitchell Development Co. It is the master list for all excavated contexts in the Kitchell testing program. It contains information about each PD and the features recorded during excavation.

Subsequently, SSI conducted additional testing and full data recovery at a nearby parcel (Unit 15) for the Kitchell Development Co. and the Lauth Property Group. See Archaeological Testing at Pueblo Grande (AZ U:9:1(ASM)): Unit 15, The Former Maricopa County Sheriff's Substation, Washington and 48th Streets, Phoenix, Arizona (SSI Techincal Report No. 99-06) for a final report on that testing and data recovery program at Pueblo Grande.

Column Name Data Type Type Category Coding Sheet Ontology
DATE_OPENED The date that a given PD unit was opened.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Other none none
DATE_CLOSED The date that a given PD unit was closed.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Other none none
STRUCTURAL_UNIT The number designation of a defined structural unit. A structural unit is any further division of a PD unit. Structural units were defined by project directors of field directors during data recovery.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
LEVEL The number designation assigned to a level in a collection unit. Levels in a collection unit are numbered from 1 to n. The modern ground surface is designated level 0. Backhoe trenches, shovel skimming, backdirt, and stripping are also coded as level 0. For non-burial subfeatures, levels are designated as separate levels in that subfeature, and not as the level of the feature it is in. For burial features, levels are designated as separate levels in the burial pit and are numbered from 1 to n. This level designation system holds even in burial pits that contain multiple burials (and thus have subfeature numbers) in a single pit.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Vertical Position none none
INTEGRITY A general assessment of the types and severity of disturbance that have impacted a given PD unit and associated cultural contexts. Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Provenience Integrity Coding Sheet for a list of integrity description types.
BIGINT  Coded Value Provenience and Context Soil Systems, Inc. Provenience Integrity Coding Sheet none
FEATURE_TYPE The inferred type (i.e., function and/or cultural use, significance) of a given feature.Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Feature Type Coding Sheet for a complete list of available feature types.
BIGINT  Coded Value Provenience and Context : Feature ID/Number Soil Systems, Inc. Feature Type Coding Sheet none
AUDIT_VERSION The Soil Systems, Inc. relational database originally contained audit tables for each artifact/analysis type to track updates/changes made to the primary data tables. Database managers recorded changes to particular data values in these audit tables. The changes were then passed on to the main data table (e.g., RS_CERAMICS). The AUDIT_VERSION number refers to the "audit number" for that particular row. Thus, if a data row contains an AUDIT_VERSION value of "2", then that row has been updated/changed with the audit-version number 2 (i.e., it has been updated two times).
BIGINT  Uncoded Value uncategorized none none
UNIT_AREA_NUMBER The number designation of any unit division of a site. When a site is particularly large and/or the cultural deposits complex, the site director might choose to divide the site into units.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
RECORDER The initials of the individuals who documented and conducted data recovery in a given PD unit.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Other none none
PD The Provenience Designation (PD) number. A PD is any area that has been examined by archaeological researchers during a given project. PD numbers are assigned to all examined areas, even when no artifacts were collected. For each site, PD numbers run from 1 to n.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
FEATURE_NUMBER The number of a feature identified and documented in a given PD unit. At each site, feature numbers were assigned from 1 to n. Subfeature numbers include the associated feature number followed by a decimal; subfeature numbers begin at .01 for each feature. For example, the second subfeature excavated in Feature 15 is coded as 15.02.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
COLLECTION_UNIT_NUMBER The number designation of a given collection unit. For each site, collection units are numbered in a series from 1 to n within each collection unit type. For example, at one site there may be a Surface Unit #1, and an Excavation Unit #1, and an Auger Test Unit #1. Backhoe trenches are also numbered consecutively per site. CU numbers are not assigned to all CU Types; they are not assigned to CU types that represent partial units and/or are voided contexts.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
SITE The ASM number of the site under investigation.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Site none none
PROJECT The SSI project number during which the given PD units were defined/investigated/excavated.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Project none none
CONTEXT The archaeological context (i.e., cultural deposit) of a PD unit. The variable predominantly describes the vertical location of a PD unit (its stratigraphic position relative to cultural features).Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Context Coding Sheet for a list of available context types.
BIGINT  Coded Value Provenience and Context : Context Soil Systems, Inc. Context Coding Sheet none
AVERAGE_BEGINNING_ELEVATION The average beginning elevation of a PD unit prior to excavation. All measurements are in meters. See the ELEVATION_REFERENCE column for the reference point (measured below datum, measured below ground surface, etc) for each elevation measurement.
BIGINT  Measurement (meter) Provenience and Context : Vertical Position none none
COLLECTION_METHOD The method used to collect artifact samples from a given collection unit. Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Collection Unit Method Coding Sheet for a list of available collection method types.
BIGINT  Coded Value Provenience and Context : Recovery Method Soil Systems, Inc. Collection Unit Method Coding Sheet none
AVERAGE_ENDING_ELEVATION The average ending elevation of a PD unit after excavation. All measurements are in meters. See the ELEVATION_REFERENCE column for the reference point (measured below datum, measured below ground surface, etc) for each elevation measurement.
BIGINT  Measurement (meter) Provenience and Context : Vertical Position none none
STRUCTURAL_UNIT_TYPE The type description of a defined structural unit. Structural unit types include Stripping Area (SA), Habitation Area (HA), Burial Group (BG), etc. Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Structural Unit Type Coding Sheet for a complete list of structural unit types.
BIGINT  Coded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location Soil Systems, Inc. Structural Unit Type Coding Sheet none
ELEVATION_REFERENCE The reference point (e.g., below datum, below ground surface, etc.) from which an elevation measurement was taken. Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Provenience Elevation Reference Coding Sheet for a list of elevation reference codes.
BIGINT  Coded Value Provenience and Context : Vertical Position Soil Systems, Inc. Provenience Elevation Reference Coding Sheet none
COLLECTION_UNIT_TYPE The type of collection unit (CU) from which a given artifact sample was taken. CU types include surface units (SU), Test Unit (TU), Excavation Unit (XU), Backhoe Trench (BHT), etc. Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Collection Unit Type Coding Sheet for a complete list of collection unit types.

Notes

General Note: These data were extracted from SSI's Advanced Revelation (AREV) relational database. The flat data set presented here represent a near complete extraction of the PD_DATA table in AREV database 97-08 Kitchell PG.

General Note: Please note that SSI recorded the Pueblo Grande number as AZ U:9:7(ASM), which is the designation for a portion of Pueblo Grande. The correct number for the site as a whole is AZ U:9:1(ASM).
