Archaeological Investigations: Arizona Nuclear Power Project, Salt River Project, Bureau of Land Management and Private Lands, Maricopa County, Arizona: Final Report for Archaeological Investigations at NA15,137 and NA15,142: Two Sites Along the Palo Verde to Westwing Transmission System

Author(s): Ronald K. Yablon

Year: 1979

Summary

The Museum of Northern Arizona conducted archaeological investigations at two sites along the Palo Verde to Westwing Transmission System, northwest of Phoenix, Arizona. NA15,137 is an extensive Hohokam sherd and lithic scatter dating to the late Colonial and Sedentary Periods. The remains indicate a seasonal occupation with an agricultural subsistence base. NA15,142 is the remains of a late 1920s to early 1930s homestead. Recovered material and archival research confirm these dates. Apparently the homestead was only briefly occupied. There were no permanent structures and only a limited amount of artifactual material.
