The ASU Fall Field School at Site AZ U:9:14 (ASM), The 1995 Season

Author(s): Glen Rice

Year: 1996


This is a report on archaeological field investigations conducted in 1994 and 1995 at a Classic period Hohokam compound located in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community of Arizona. The work was performed at the southern locus of site AZ U:9:14 (ASM) under the direction of Glen Rice as part of a course in archaeological field methods taught in the Department of Anthropology at Arizona State University (course number ASB 231 for undergraduates and ASB 532 for graduate students).

Archaeological permits for the field work were issued by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (AP-001-94) and the Phoenix Area Office of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The assistance of both the Salt River Community and the agency in helping to make the research possible is gratefully acknowledged.

This report provides a record of the basic field data and observations (maps, profiles, stratigraphic analyses), and makes such data available for use in subsequent analyses, studies and interpretation of the collected samples and artifact assemblages. An analysis of the ceramic and lithic artifactts has been completed and is summarized here as well.

The report also includes a summary of the 1994 season.
