Summary

At the request of the Bureau of Reclamation–Phoenix Area Office, ACS conducted Phase 2 data recovery at the Lake Pleasant Rockshelter site (AZ T:4:150[ASM]), Yavapai County, Arizona. Based on the results of Phase 1 investigations conducted at the site (Pinter et al. 2009), Reclamation determined that potentially significant subsurface cultural deposits were present that could provide important new data on prehistoric, protohistoric, and historic Native American and Euroamerican occupation of the general area. The proposed work plan for Phase 2 (Pinter et al. 2009) was accepted by Reclamation, and was implemented in two sessions due to inclement weather and rising lake levels. The first session occurred in January 2010, followed by a hiatus to allow the lake level to drop and the weather to cool; the second and final session occurred in late September 2010.Controlled Phase 2 excavations at AZ T:4:150(ASM) revealed an initial Gila Butte phase (Colonial period) use, with intermittent Hohokam use through at least the early Classic period. Protohistoric through Historic period Yavapai use of the shelter was documented, followed by a final Late Historic period use of indeterminate origin (Yavapai or Euroamerican) primarily during the 1920s–1940s.The evidence suggests this last occupation was by Yavapai people but the nearby Brown Homestead was occupied during this time span as well. The results of Phase 2 data recovery, which completely excavated the interior of the shelter, documented the long history of use of the site and provided substantial new evidence of subsistence and tool use practices among the Yavapai.
