Contributions to the Archeology of Petrified Forest National Park, 1985-1986

Author(s): Anne Trinkle Jones

Year: 1987


Archeological work conducted during the summers of 1985 and 1986

produced much new data which was badly needed to update our perceptions of Petrified Forest prehistory. A total of 120 sites along the park boundaries and in the developed areas were recorded, many of them for the first time. Surveys to fulfill compliance requirements prior to

installation of a new water system (NPS Package No. Ill) and developed

area surveys provided data on prehistoric land use and settlement

patterns in large blocks or quadrats. A privately funded survey of a

1/4-mile wide corridor around the 91-mile park perimeter, half of which

was completed, provided transect-type data in a variety of environmental

zones. Also included in this report are the results of limited

excavation at AZ K:13:60 (ASM) , an Archaic campsite inhabited in the

first millennium B.C. The site was recorded first in the summer of

1985, and testing was undertaken in 1986 to determine its condition and

National Register significance.
