Author(s): Lyle M. Stone

Year: 1980

Summary

On October 2, 1980, Lyle M. Stone of Archaeological Research Services performed limited test excavations at the existing quartermaster building of the 1864-1885 Yuma Depot, now a part of Yuma Territorial Prison State Park, Yuma, Arizona. This project was authorized by Gerald A. Doyle and Associates, A.l.A. and was performed under the conditions of an Arizona antiquities permit (No. 80-13) issued by the Arizona State Museum to Archaeological Research Services on August 13, 1980. Doyle and Associates is developing restoration plans for the quartermaster building for the Arizona State Parks Board.

The purpose of this archaeological project was to attempt to determine if sub-surface evidence of the building's original porch floor construction was present. It had been noted that a brick porch floor previously existed around this building until recently at which time it was removed, exposing redeposited sand and gravel.
