Additional Archaeological Testing at Site AZ EE:9:91, Patagonia Lake State Park, Southern Arizona

Author(s): Jon S. Czaplicki

Year: 1981


Archaeological testing was conducted at site AZ EE:9:91 at Patagonia Lake State Park from 28 through 30 October 1981. This work, done under contract to Arizona State Parks under Arizona State Museum {ASM) permit 81-23, was to supplement similar investigation carried out by ASH personnel at AZ EE:9:91 on 8 and 9 June 1981. The testing crew consisted of Annick George, Carol McCarthy, James Mayberry, and Jon S. Czaplicki.

Earlier testing involved backhoe excavation of four trenches to determine the nature of the site and the amount and degree of subsurface cultural material present. Faunal material was recovered that was later identified as either Bison bison (American buffalo or bison) or Bos taurus (domestic cow). No definite identification was possible, however,and additional testing, the results of which are reported herein, was recommended to State Parks.

Roxanne Cernaghan contributed the section concerning lithic assemblage.
