An Archaeological Reassessment and Evaluation of Eight Site Clusters Around Horseshoe Reservoir, Tonto National Forest


Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) undertook a field evaluation of eight site clusters (77 sites) around Horseshoe Reservoir, in the Tonto National Forest. The boundaries of the site clusters and the particular sites assessed were designated by the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation).

The goals of the project were to relocate previously recorded sites, replot them using a GPS, evaluate the accuracy and completeness of the existing site documentation and amend as necessary, and reassess using current standards the cultural/temporal affiliation and site function. The results are presented here.
