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 -- DRAFT REPORT

Summary

Based on existing development plans prepared for Kitchell Development Co. for the parcel containing a former Maricopa County Sheriff’s substation at 48th and Washington Streets, Phoenix, Arizona, two areas were to be excavated below grade for a building foundation and a runoff detention basin. Because this parcel is immediately east of known prehistoric cultural remains that are part of the large Hohokam site of Pueblo Grande (AZ U:9:1(ASM)), backhoe trenching was conducted in the two areas to investigate whether intact prehistoric cultural remains were present that would be impacted by construction. Fieldwork was conducted from 15 to 22 March 1999 by personnel from Soil Systems, Inc. (SSI). The main goal was to establish whether mortuary features containing human remains were present or likely to be encountered if the existing development plans were followed, and if so, to comply with A.R.S. 41-865.
