Wirth Associates, Arizona Station Transmission System, Salt River Project, State, Private, and Federal Lands, Coconino, Navajo, and Apache Counties, Arizona, Valencia and Catron Counties, New Mexico: Preliminary Draft for Phase I: Archaeological and Ethno-historical Research


At the request of Wirth Associates, the Museum of Northern Arizona conducted a Phase I archaeological study of an area in east-central Arizona to identify prehistoric and ethno-historic groups in to delineate areas of potential archaeological sensitivity within the study area. Existing archaeological site data were gathered from various Arizona and New Mexico institutions, and archaeological site density per township was mapped. Site density figures were compared with vegetational and hydrological factors to determine site locations relative to these variables. Inherent patterns were then extrapolated from well-studied districts to the study area as a whole, and three levels of archaeological potential were mapped. In addition, very important single sites are identified. Included in the report are statements on the culture history of the study area, a description of the predictive methodology and the data for the archaeological sensitivity maps previously submitted to WIRTH that accompany this report.
