Evaluation of Previously Recorded Archaeological Sites and Geomorphology at the Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, Ganado, Arizona: Report
The Superintendent of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site (HUTR) requested that the Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office (Reclamation) reidentify and reassess historic and prehistoric cultural remains that had been identified during previous surveys of the 160-acre historic site. The Superintendent also requested that a small sample survey be undertaken to help evaluate the accuracy of the previous surveys. On behalf of HUTR and the National Park Service (NPS), Reclamation contracted with Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) of Tempe, Arizona, to conduct the resurvey.
ACS’s initial survey efforts in December 2001 and May 2002 documented the extremely active and complex geomorphological processes forming the landscape visible today. HUTR is situated on the geologic floodplain of Pueblo Colorado Wash in an area of active dune formation and colluvial slopewash. All three processes have the potential to erode, deflate, and/or bury archaeological sites, and prior research indicates that all three processes have obscured and confused the archaeological evidence. Cultural remains might be buried, and thus invisible, and/or cultural remains might be in the process of being destroyed through erosion. Accordingly, discussions with the Park Superintendent and Reclamation resulted in a secondary contract between HUTR and ACS to document the geomorphology affecting the historic site and to reconstruct the processes that created the landscape visible today.
