Archaeological Testing at AZ T:3:79(ASM) in Lake Pleasant Regional Park, Yavapai County, Arizona


In November of 1992, at the request of the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) conducted an evaluation of a portion of AZ T:3:79(ASM). Subsurface testing was performed because proposed road modifications had the potential to impact the cultural resources present. Testing was limited to a 5 m right-of-way on either side of the existing road. The objectives were to define the nature and extent of any buried cultural material and make recommendations for further work, if necessary. No subsurface cultural remains were identified in the 200 m of backhoe trench placed adjacent to and on either side of the existing road. No further work is recommended within the 5 m wide zone adjacent to the existing road. However, if other portions of the site are to be impacted at a future date, they should be tested. The artifact analysis supports the suggestion made by the Reclamation surveyors that the site was perhaps a pre-Classic period Hohokam habitation area.
